Lower back pain is very common and can generally be classified into acute lower back pain and mild to moderate lower back pain. It is not always possible to make a precise diagnosis of a specific back injury or condition which might be causing lower back pain. However, this should not prevent the back pain from being managed or treated.
Posture and deportment have a massive effect on how our backs are affected during our working and sporting days. Correct posture, together with back and stomach muscle strength, can correct 80% of back-care problems.

Acute lower back pain – sudden onset
Severe low back pain usually comes on suddenly and is caused by a minor movement such as bending over. The pain may increase over a couple of hours as inflammation develops. The pain is usually in the lumbar area of the spine but can radiate into the buttocks.
What can be done for severe or acute lower back pain?
For pains related to the lower back such as Buttock bursa pain, Tailbone pain, Upper hamstring pain, Piriformis Syndrome, Sciatica, Herniated disc etc, there are many different types of treatment methods, some of which include:
Avoid movements or positions that make the pain worse.
Bed rest may help but not for more than two days as resting for too long can make back injuries worse.
Often movement is needed after the initial pain and inflammation have gone.
