Lower back pain
I'm a male, 38 years old. I've been having minor discomfort in my lower back (lumbar region) for several years now. Sometimes it's better, sometimes worse but it has never prevented me from leading a normal life. Occasionally I may move a certain way and feel a sharp pain but usually the discomfort is tolerable if not annoying. It often feels stiff, especially in the morning, and I feel the most discomfort when I'm standing. Exercises usually makes it feel a little better for awhile. I suspect some of the factors may be a life time of poor posture and I can remember two instances where I fell and landed on my back. Any suggestions?

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include postural issues, neuro-muscular causes such as muscle sprain, nerve impingement, injuries to muscles/ ligaments etc inflammations, fractures/ dislocations, referred pain from other regions, micronutrient deficiencies etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
