Lower back pain can be caused by a number of possibilities. There are more options than just pain killers! Massage therapy can target the exact source of the pain and is an effective, natural solution that can significantly relieve you of the pain you are in.
Here are some of the causes for lower back pain, which can all be treated at LWB:
Sciatica - If you are experience pain which radiated from the lower spine, deep in the buttocks, down the back of the leg and into the foot, this could be sciatica. You may also experience pain, numbness or tingling down the back of the leg and calf. You may find it difficult to move your leg/foot/toes or feel a sharp pain sensation as you attempt to stand.
Piriformis Syndrome - The piriformis is a small muscle located deep in the buttocks. It runs from the base of the spine to the thigh bone. The piriformis muscle can irritate the sciatic nerve which can lead to severe discomfort in one buttock or leg.
Gluteus Minimis Trigger Points - This is the smallest of the three gluteal muscles. It is located in the buttocks, outside the hip and beneath the glutes medius. You may experience pain or numbness in the buttocks, or a radiating pain from the buttocks to the thigh, into the calf and possibly to the knee, lower leg and ankle. You may also feel hip pain whilst walking or rising from a chair.
Quadratus Lumborum - This is a muscle located either side of the lower back. it connects the top of the pelvis to the spine and ribs. if this muscle spasms, you will experience pain radiating from the side of the back, along the hip and into the upper groin area. You may experience pain over the sacroiliac joint, and lower buttocks, or pain down the thigh or hip joint.
