Lumbago with sciatica | Cause | Prevention | Treatment | Medication

Updated: Jun 1, 2020

Lumbago with sciatica is characterized by pain radiating from the lower back down into your leg. Tailored exercises can be part of your ongoing pain prevention strategy. Post diagnosis, work on a strong core with good functional range across the joints of your spine and hips.

Causes lumbago sciatica:

Lumbago can be caused by several factors, but the main reason is the overuse of the lower back and the sudden lifting of a heavy load. Lumbago can be the result of excessive bending or other repetitive motions involving the lower back. Osteoarthritis and spinal arthritis (spondylosis) can be factors.


Symptoms of lumbago?

Mild to severe pain across the lower part of the back which sometimes travels into the buttocks, the groin area, or down into the back of the thigh. A stiff neck, which is caused by the muscles surrounding the spine going into spasm. Difficulty in bending forward and leaning back.


Symptoms of lumbago:

Mild to severe pain across the lower part of the back which sometimes travels into the buttocks, the groin area, or down into the back of the thigh. This pain is usually aggravated by movement. A stiff neck, which is caused by the muscles surrounding the spine going into spasm. Difficulty in bending forward and leaning back. Again this is caused by spasms in the muscles surrounding the spine. There may be a change in posture (e.g. leaning to one side) due to the severe pain and spasms in the lower back. There may sometimes be a tingling sensation or a feeling of numbness in the back, buttocks or down along one or both legs.


Cause:

Identifying the exact cause of lumbago is very difficult. It can be caused by a variety of conditions such as a slipped disc, scoliosis (deformation of the natural curvature of the spine), osteoporosis (brittle bone disease), or more rarely, by tumors or infection in the spinal area. It is usually only possible to pinpoint the exact cause of lumbago in about 30% of cases. The majority of those where another cause is not found is believed to be due to muscle sprain.


Warning signs:

A sudden inability to control bladder or bowel movements. A feeling of numbness or tingling in the area of the lower back, buttocks, or legs. A dull, aching pain in the lower back which is accompanied by reduced strength or muscle bulk in one or both legs.


Lumbago diagnosed:

In the majority of cases, your GP will be able to diagnose the problem on the basis of the information supplied by you, the patient. It is seldom necessary to take X-rays, scans, or blood tests unless your GP feels there is a more serious underlying cause for the pain.
