Lumbago is a sudden pain in the lower back that is often felt like a stab or electric shock. This pain can be so intense that it severely restricts mobility. There are many triggers for lumbago, including excessive strain, incorrect posture, muscle tension, herniated discs or degenerative changes in the spine.

The treatment of lumbago usually involves rest, if necessary pain-relieving medication, physiotherapy and heat applications and targeted injections. Regular physical activity and good work ergonomics can minimise the risk.

In the event of lumbago, and especially in the case of loss of mobility and signs of paralysis, seek professional medical advice to rule out an acute slipped disc. An integrative approach can help to support your physical health with preventative measures.
