Why pulls the lower back?
Many face back pain. This is a very frequent occurrence. And not only the elderly and people of mature age are confronted, but also young people, especially those who are addicted to physical activity.
In this article we will talk about why pulls the waist, and what are the methods of dealing with this disease.
Causes of low back pain
It is customary to divide pains into sharp, aching, pulling and so on. In this article we will focus on the pains. Causes of pain can be:
In this case, we are talking about symptoms that usually do not affect physical activity. However, if you notice that the pain is aggravated when you start to exercise or after active movements, then you have reason to suspect a spinal injury. Usually, with trauma, pulling pain gives to the arm or leg. In this case, it is recommended to urgently consult a doctor.
In the event of a deformity of the vertebrae, which may be congenital, the spine, or any part of it, begins to deviate from its natural position.Pulling pains arise precisely with such deformations and usually extend to the entire lower back. Another symptom of vertebral deformity, in addition to pulling pain, is the disruption of work of some organs.
Pulling back pain may indicate myositis. This inflammatory process usually causes hypothermia. Because of the infection, a thickening of the muscles of the back occurs, which causes a nagging pain.
Pulling pain in the lumbar region may be a sure sign of arthritis. During this disease, the process of inflammation affects the joints of the spine. The spine begins to lose its mobility and there is a feeling of stiffness. Especially severe pain in the lumbar region in the morning, after waking.
Diseases of the internal organs
Very often, when pulling the lower back on the right, the person also feels a sharp pain. This symptom indicates a disease of the internal organs. In this case, physical movements may not be limited. Such diseases can be diseases of the stomach or genital organs (in women).
Typically, pneumonia begins with a strong cough.Many do not pay attention to this symptom, however, if you find that as a result of coughing, pain is given to the lower back, this is a sure sign of progressive pneumonia. In pneumonia, the smooth muscles of the bronchial system are greatly reduced during cough, an increase in pressure in the chest occurs, and a pulling back pain appears.
Diseases of the cardiovascular system
If you feel nagging pain in the lower back, it can mean the progression of cardiovascular diseases. In particular, we are talking about ischemic heart disease. Usually, pains in the region of the heart also appear during this illness. And often the pain has a spontaneous character - it appears suddenly and suddenly passes.
Pulling pain during pregnancy
In women, nagging pain in the lumbar region may be due to pregnancy. This is due to the load that is on the spine. Similarly, an abdominal pain may disappear from time to time and reappear. This is due to the activities of relaxin. This hormone relaxes the muscles of the back, but its effect is not permanent.Often, the pain can go away if the woman is sitting still and suddenly appearing if the pelvis is raised. Therefore, getting up sharply without any help is not recommended.
If you are experiencing nagging pains, you have pulls in your lower back and legs, then you need to think about visiting a doctor. After all, gynecological diseases primarily affect the muscles of the back and legs. In addition, the pain may be lower abdomen.
As a rule, nagging pains in the lumbar region indicate excessive loads. At first, there are minor pains, why they develop into heaviness. Therefore, as soon as you feel a slight tingling, which develops into constant pain, it is recommended to use warming compresses and eliminate physical exertion. If the pain persists, consult a doctor.
