Lower back conditions may be characterised by a feeling of pins and needles in the legs, numbness in the legs or pain in the buttocks, groin or legs. Changes in bowel motions (how often you use the toilet) can also indicate a lower back problem.
Causes of Back Pain
The most common cause of lower back pain is pelvic imbalance caused by frequent poor posture. Other more serious causes of pain could indicate spinal disc injuries, urinary tract infections or gynaecological or prostatic disorders.
Osteopaths can address pelvic imbalance and disc injuries by re-aligning your lower back, pelvis and hips. Urinary tract infections, gynaecological, prostate and bowel disorders are treated by stimulating the body’s nervous system.
