Sharp Lower Back Pain Hurts

Here are the four reasons for lower back pain, although they could be the reasons for other kinds of pain as well.
These pains could be sharp, dull or throbbing, all stem from the same basic causes.
Causing More Damage When You're Already In Pain Using pain meds, stretching or putting pressure on your joints unnecessarily will increase pain throughout your back.
Your lumbar spine is designed for stability, not mobility.
Trying to stretch, take pills or move into awkward positions will increase mobility but not stability, and it's a lack of stability that is causing you pain.
Poor Movement Patterns in Daily Life and Exercise Do you sit in a chair all day? Do you hunch over when sitting? Are you slouched in your car while driving to and from work every day? Fix these things by placing your feet squarely in front of your body and raising your head to the top of your neck.
Be sure to adjust your chair, steering wheel and computer monitor to allow for idea upright seating conditions.
When you reach down, do you bend your back or your knees? You're supposed to bend your knees! Squats are actually a great way to improve your movement patterns, so be sure to work on proper squats every single day, it's all about practice and re-training those back/knee muscles.
Underlying Muscular Imbalances and Postural Dysfunctions Do you stand or sit with all your weight to one side? If so, knock it off.
You are seriously messing up the alignment of your body, similar to that of the axles in a car.
Deep Core Stabilizer Muscles that DON'T WORK Sometimes all these other causes will lead to a more serious problem, the shutdown and atrophy of core muscle groups in the back.
If this happens then you must work on fixing the other three causes before this one can be addressed.
It's a viscous cycle, and it's about time you broke yourself out of it and fixed your back.
