Low Back Pain


Pain in the lower back or Low back pain (LBP) is a common concern, affecting up to 50-80% of general population at some point in lifetime. Up to 50% will have more than one episode.LBP is not a specific disease; rather it is a symptom that my occur from a variety of different processes. In up to 85% of people with LBP, despite a thorough medical examination,no specific cause for the pain can be identified.
Backache can have many underlying reasons, but often no specific source can be found and the pain will resolve. This will review many of the causes of back pain, along with the proper evaluation and diagnostic approach.

LBP is second only to the common cold as a cause of lost days at work. It is also one of the most common reasons for a visit to the doctor’s office or the emergency department. It is the second most common neurologic complaint in the world, second only to headache.

 

Classification

LBP can be classified by the duration of symptoms as acute (less than 4 wks), sub acute (4-12 wks), or chronic (more than 12wks).

 

CAUSES

The majority of pain in the lower back stems from benign musculoskeletal problem and is referred to as non- specific LBP. This type may be due to sprain or strain of muscles and soft tissues of the back, particularly when the pain seems to arise suddenly during physical loading, and laterally to the spine. Over 99% of back pain during exertion cases fall into this category.

 

Pathophysiology

Causes of mechanical LBP are generally attributable to a specific traumatic event, but they may also have cumulative trauma as aetiology. The severity of an acute traumatic event varies widely, from twisting of one’s back to being involved in a motor vehicle collision. Mechanical LBP due to cumulative trauma to occur more commonly in the work place.

Biomechanically, the movements on the lumbar spine consist of the cumulative motions of the vertebrae, with 80-90% of the lumbar flexion/extension occurring at the L4-L5 and L5-S1intervertebral discs

The lumbar spine movements most likely to produce LBP are forward flexion (bending forward), rotation (twisted trunk), and attempts to lift heavy objects with outstretched arms.

Axial lading of short duration is supported by the annular collagen fibers in the disc. Long- term axial loading creates higher pressures on the annulus fibroses and on the endplates. If the annulus and endplates are intact, the loading forces can be adequately resisted to.

 

Complications

Complex social legal, and economic issued tend to produce many of the complications surrounding mechanical LBP

 

Prognosis

The prognosis is good for recovery from mechanical LP at 1 mo 35% of patients can be expected to recover: at 3 mo 85% have recovered: and at 6 mo the recovery rates is 95%

Failure ofa patient to recover should lead the clinician into a more through and extensive search for the causes of the back pain, including the possibility of recurrent back injuries.
