Why is lasting low back pain relief so difficult to find?
Is your low back pain isolated to just the low back or are there other hidden causes?
Sometimes you have to look beyond what may seem as a logical cause of your low back pain. The point of pain is only 10% of the total picture causing the nerve pressures that activates low back pain. Other things we might want to consider are: 1) circulation to the low back area, 2)pelvic balance or imbalance can affect the low back pain patterns, 3) is there a change in the lumbar curve? 4) is there a hidden disc involved in the low back pain pattern? 5) are the abdominal muscle so weak that the low back has overpowered the abdomen and is causing the pinched nerve in the low back, 6) is there a kidney that has dropped or been dislodged into the wrong physical location?
Here are some of the major causes affecting the nerves of your low back that contribute to lingering low back pain. Structural change in any of these following areas can contribute to unresolved low back pain: 1) twisted pelvis, 2) muscles spasms in your legs and thighs, 3) dropped arches can telescope problems to your low back, 4) jaw injuries can make your pelvis unstable and affect your low back, 5) brain trauma causes a breakdown in communication between the nerves of your pelvis, low back, and your brain, 6) trauma to your chest can reduce blood flow to your low back and starve the low back nerves causing them to scream for more blood or nerve flow.
What are some of the major actions that create low back pain?
- Lifting incorrectly
- Twisting while lifting
- Weak abdominal muscles – the “see / saw” effect = pressure on your low back
- Vertebrae that are pinching the nerves exiting from the spine
- A lumbar disc that has deteriorated on one side pinching a low back nerve
- A lumbar disc that has become damaged from excessive wear
- A lumbar disc that has split and allowed the inner core of the disc to leak out.
- A jaw injury affecting your pelvis
- Imbalances in muscles twisting the pelvis which twists the lumbar vertebrae and pinches the low back nerves.
- A skull or brain injury that prevents the brain from communicating properly with the low back nerves, muscles and pelvic nerves.
What types of injuries have a major affect on the low back, pelvis, jaw and skull?
- Falls in general or even downstairs,
- Falls off ladders
- Falls off horses
- Falls in sports injuries
- Falling off motor cycles or dirt bikes
- Falling out of windows
- Jumping off a house – carpenters do that a lot
- Car accidents even fender benders – 95% of Americans have had a car accident about every ten years.
- Air bag explosion hitting the body.
- Lifting heavy equipment or objects without back support
