Lumbodynia or chronic low back pain is not uncommon. For example, in the United States, back pain is the second most common neurological disorder after headaches. Often, chronic back pain leads to long-term disability, and in a certain percentage of cases, to disability. Typically, in acute low back pain, it is most often caused by injury or inflammation (arthritis), and low back pain usually lasts from several days to several weeks. Acute pains can also be caused by pathology from the internal organs and have a reflected character. Some acute pain syndromes can lead to serious complications if not properly treated.
Low back pain (chronic) is only a symptom. The most common causes of lumbodynia are diseases or injuries to the muscles, bones, and / or nerves in the spine. Pain arising from abnormalities in the abdominal cavity, pelvis or chest can also be felt in the lower back, and such pain is called reflected pain. Many abdominal diseases such as appendicitis, aneurysms, kidney disease, kidney infections, bladder infections, and pelvic infections can cause back pain. A thorough history and physical examination can usually diagnose life-threatening conditions that may be associated with low back pain. The patient describes the onset of the onset, the intensity of the pain, the duration of the pain and other symptoms, any restrictions on movement; a history of previous episodes of pain or the presence of a medical condition that may be associated with pain.
In most cases, minor back pain is treated without surgery. Medications are often used to treat acute and chronic low back pain and lumbodynia. Effective pain relief can involve a combination of different drugs. These can be drugs of the NSAID group, which can reduce pain, reduce the inflammatory process. Muscle relaxants are also used, which reduce muscle spasm in lumbodynia. With prolonged pain syndrome, antidepressants are also used, both tricyclic and serotonin reuptake inhibitors, and sometimes anticonvulsants, which act on the central links of pain. Opioids are prescribed for intense acute or chronic pain, but their long-term use is limited by the presence of pronounced side effects (painful addiction).
