Lower Back Pain Types of Diagnoses and Conditions
At Kennedy Health Clinic, we offer comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of back pain conditions. Our specialists are skilled in identifying and addressing the following diagnoses:
Compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve can result in radiating pain, numbness, and tingling sensations traveling from the lower back down to the legs.
This condition occurs when one vertebra slips forward or backward onto the bone below it, leading to lower back pain and potential nerve compression.
Muscle Imbalances and Postural Issues
Poor posture, weak core muscles, and muscle imbalances can contribute to chronic back pain and discomfort.
Facet Joint Syndrome
Dysfunction or inflammation of the facet joints, located on the back of the spine, can cause localized back pain and restricted movement.
Pain Management Symptoms of Back Pain
Back pain can manifest in various ways, and both acute and chronic symptoms may be experienced. Common symptoms associated with back pain include:
Localized or Radiating Pain
Pain may be felt in specific areas of the back or may radiate to other parts of the body, such as the buttocks, hips, or legs.
Stiffness and Reduced Flexibility
Back pain can lead to stiffness, making it difficult to perform daily activities or engage in physical movements.
Painful muscle spasms in the back can result from muscle strains or underlying musculoskeletal conditions.
Numbness and Tingling
Compression of nerves in the back can cause sensations of numbness, tingling, or a “pins-and-needles” feeling.
