Acute Low Back Pain

Posted on February 18, 2018 at 9:25 PM


Acute low back pain is a common problem in the western world and is a major cause of disability. It is difficult to estimate the incidence of low back pain as the incidence of first-ever episodes of low back pain is already high by early adulthood and symptoms tend to recur over time. The lifetime prevalence of non-specific (common) low back pain is estimated at 60% to 70% in industrialized countries ... The prevalence rate for children and adolescents is lower than that seen in adults but is rising (cited from www.who.int/medicines/areas/priority_medicines/Ch6_24LBP.pdf).

The lower back is the area of the spine between the bottom of the ribs and the pelvis. There are five movable lumbar vertebrae with discs in between them. They are supported by strong surrounding muscles and ligaments with spinal nerves existing between each of the vertebrae. The pelvis articulates with the spine and provides additional stability and support for the spine. All of these structures combine to make your body into a strong but flexible structure, allowing you mobility while protecting the spinal cord and nerves.

Low back pain is a very common problem in Australia– statistics show that 8 out of 10 Australians suffer from back pain at some time. It can be so painful that becomes extremely debilitating. Back pain is one of the most common reasons patients come to Chiropractors for help.

Research has found that chiropractic care has the following benefits, compared to conventional treatment options:

  • Decrease in pain relief medication use
  • Faster recovery times
  • Significant improvement in back pain symptoms
  • Significant improvement in physical activity tolerance

Chiropractors have found that patients who have had multiple episodes of acute low back pain find that over time these episodes can get more frequent, last longer and sometimes the pain will never completely be gone. Chiropractors believe that it is important to have a quality treatment program that addresses the movement of the spine to restore normal muscle control and function and try to prevent further episodes of acute low back pain.

Treatment may include:

  • Ice/Cold therapy
  • Therapeutic Exercises
  • Stretching tight muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments
  • Core stability exercises to improve bracing muscles
  • Teaching and prescription of a home exercise program to assist in recovery and prevent re-occurrence
  • Spinal adjustments
  • Pelvic alignment techniques
  • Dry needling
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Instruction in proper body mechanics during bending, lifting and carrying heavy objects
  • Ergonomic adjustments in the work place

Maintaining proper spinal function, staying active and with the help of beneficial chiropractic treatment may well be the best solution for your Acute Low Back Pain.

Stretch of the Month

The Pelvic Tilt


When you're suffering from lower-back pain, you might feel as if your entire pelvic area is immovable. This stretch can help you start to bring some movement back to this area gently.

Begin by lying on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor.

Try to relax your low back, keeping it in a neutral position (which means you should feel a slight curve in your low back if you place the top of your hand under your back).

Turn "on" your core muscles and then flatten your low back against the floor by slightly tilting your pelvis upward.

Repeat 12 to 15 times.

Towards Wellness

Simple Mindfulness Tip

Simple mindfulness techniques can help you manage stress and achieve more balance in your life. Set aside some time every day to practice deep breathing exercises. Focus on breathing deeply down into your tummy using your diaphragm to expand your lungs fully. This helps you to de-stress and promotes relaxation.
