Pain in the lower spine is often associated with low back pain. This pain is usually associated with ligaments (connective tissue) around the spine, nerves, and spinal cord. According to our back pain specialist, lower back pain is most common in adults aged 30-40 years.

Treatment of lower back pain depends on the cause of lower back pain. Here are some treatment options that can be done:

Back Pain Physiotherapy
After an episode of low back pain has lasted between two and six weeks, or if there are frequent recurrences of low back pain, physical therapy is often recommended. Some spine specialists consider physical therapy sooner, particularly if the pain is severe. Back pain physiotherapy is necessary to rehabilitate the spine and for strengthening of the back muscle to prevent further recurrences. We provide in house back pain physiotherapy where our physiotherapist are working hand in hand with our specialist to ensure the speed of recovery of our patient.
Back Pain Surgery
Spinal surgery is the final choice if other treatments don’t work, or if the pain is so severe that the sufferer cannot sleep or move. A common surgical procedure is discectomy (the part of the disc between the spine is removed so the disc does not suppress the spinal cord) and spinal fusion (two or more vertebrae are combined to stabilise the spine and reduce pain). However, this surgery has the risk of serious complications, such as nerve damage around the area of surgery or even paralysis.
For those of you who experience lower back pain, keep trying to move actively to help recovery. Do movement without haste and do not force the body.
