Many people wait too long to have the health of their spine assessed for the first time. And that’s why more than 80% of us will suffer at least one—and often many more—incidents of lumbago during our lifetime. The condition can cause pain, limit mobility and sap energy day after day.

Pain qualifies as chronic when it persists for more than six months, be it constant or episodic. Always take this type of symptom seriously, because it can immensely undermine a person’s quality of life. Among the main consequences of chronic undiagnosed lower-back pain is lumbar osteoarthritis (deterioration of the spine in that area).

The most common causes of chronic lower-back pain are

  • herniated discs
  • bulging discs
  • posture-related lumbago (scoliosis, for example)
  • facet syndrome
  • lumbar-disc degeneration

Chronic lower-back pain can sometimes be accompanied by

  • pain extending into one leg or both (sciatic nerve issues, for instance)
  • numbness extending into one leg or both
  • lower-limb weakness or numbness
  • loss of balance
  • limits on sports and day-to-day activities
  • loss of energy

Early detection and quick action are your best bets for a truly effective recovery in most cases.
