Lower Back Pain
« on: January 27, 2009, 06:39:44 AM »
I've started feeling some lower back pain recently and I'm not too sure if it is serious or not right now. I'm looking for some advice on whether it is something I should have looked at or if I can remedy it myself. My back pain is not constant, it does not hurt when I am walking around but only hurts when I hyper-extend my back. Hopefully I can get some help and advice here.

Thanks

Steve Lockhart

The best initial advice I can give you is to download my free ebook so you understand back pain a lot better and from there you will be able to work out how serious it is. You can get the book from www.backpain.com.au

Good luck,
Steve

My main question here would be how would I tell the difference between joint pain or muscle pain? The past couple days, my back has improved but I'm just wondering about the causes and effects (if any) it would have on me in the future.

The joint pain, meaning when you have some damage to the joint, is still set up by muscle problems so at this stage this is likely what you are confronting. It takes so time for the irritation to the joint to develop into a structural problem but faster the more exercise and irritation you do on it.

The cause of back pain doesn't leave the body, the body learns to conpensate for it and it gets buried and that is why you stop getting pain. Especially if you are relatively inactive. If problem muscles remain in the body for any decent length of time you will develop muscle imbalances.
