Is Your Lower Back Tingling?

Tingling in your lower back is anything but easy to live with. Even if it’s not accompanied by advanced pain, it’s still uncomfortable to the point of bothering you throughout the day.

Lower back pain

Rather than hope this problem goes away, it’s critical to receive an accurate medical diagnosis. Some of the most common reasons for tingling of the lower back include:

•    Herniated disc
•    Spinal stenosis
•    Sciatica

It’s important to know the exact cause of the tingling as that’ll give you a better idea of the type of treatment that could work.

For example, if you’re suffering from a herniated disc, physical therapy along with ice and pain relievers is often a good place to start. And if that doesn’t work, it’s time to consider the possibility of surgery.

Some people suffer from lower back tingling that never goes away, while others only experience this every now and again. Either way, don’t ignore it. There’s a treatment strategy that can help you feel better, and once you find it you’ll be confident in your ability to reach your former level of health.
