How do back problems arise?
Back pain is unfortunately becoming increasingly common. These complaints can start spontaneously or gradually get worse. Pain in the lower back can be located somewhere between the lower rib and the tailbone. Usually you can clearly pinpoint the spot. In some cases there is radiation, usually in one leg and sometimes in both legs. This can be in the form of a sharp pain, but sometimes there is also tingling. Some postures and movements cause more symptoms. Sometimes movement itself is almost impossible.
Causes of back pain
Back pain can have many different causes. In most cases, there is non-specific low back pain. This means that the cause is not directly demonstrated by means of, for example, an X-ray or MRI. Usually the cause can be found in the musculoskeletal system, that is, in the muscles or joints. Examples of this are terms like Spit and Lumbago. These are precisely the complaints where physiotherapy has much to offer.
Sometimes a herniated disc in the lower back is the cause of the complaints. Often these complaints go away with the help of physiotherapy. With a hernia there is pressure on the nerve that runs from the lower back to the leg. In general, the complaints in the leg are more prominent than the complaints in the back. So you have more pain in your leg than pain in your lower back. Often this is a sharp clear pain that goes through the leg.
Osteoarthritis symptoms of the lower back occur more frequently as we age. We see in particular that the intervertebral discs show signs of aging. This can possibly lead to complaints.
