I had some lower back pain last year . But have been doing good now. But for the past 2-3 weeks or so I have noticed that whenever I start walking after being in sitting position for more than 20 minutes, i start to limp. I limp for aboit 20 steps or so and then I get towalk fine.
Why is that ? and what can I do so that doesnt happen.
Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possible causes of back pain include postural issues, joint inflammation/ degeneration, neuro-muscular causes such as muscle sprain, nerve impingement, injuries to muscles/ ligaments, inflammations, spinal causes such as degeneration, micronutrient deficiencies, referred pain from other regions etc. The limp could be related to causes located at the back or local causes such as neuro-muscular/ vascular causes at the leg. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.
