"Sleep wrong": Assuming you have only back pain, done nothing physically unusual in the preceding few days, and are not menstruating/ovulating, then most likely your sleep position strained your back or compressed the facet joints in the back of your spine. Either way, such pain should be short-lived. If it isn't, something else is wrong. ...Read more

Might it be that a a coccyx injury be the cause of lower back pain?

Might it be that a a coccyx injury be the cause of lower back pain?

Coccydynia: Tailbone pain can occur with or without injury. Not likely to cause pain higher up, though. Back problems, however, may cause tailbone pain. Treatment includes nsaid's, and a sitting pillow. Not a doughnut, but a foam wedge with triangle cutout. This keeps you sitting leaning forward without pressure on the coccyx. If persistent, removal is rarely needed but successful. ...Read more

Why might it be that lower back pain from an injury move around to different spots?

Why might it be that lower back pain from an injury move around to different spots?

Facet joints: Your spine is made of bony blocks called vertebrae, which are connected to each other by small joints called facet joints. When individual vertebrae are misaligned, this places strain on facets at different levels. You may benefit from gentle physical therapy or an honest chiropractor. If you have associated leg pain, see your pain management doctor asap. ...Read more

What does acute lumbar faciities mean? What causes it? How to treat it? I have lower back pain. Didn't fall. No injuries. Not lifting heavy neither.

What does acute lumbar faciities mean? What causes it? How to treat it? I have lower back pain. Didn't fall. No injuries. Not lifting heavy neither.

Lumbar "faciities"?: Did you mean acute lumbar facet( joint pain)? If so, this is frustrating to patients since these structural joints can be aggravated without any fall, lifting incident, etc. Simple things like quickly turning over in bed, getting out of a chair, twisting to do laundry, vacuuming, sweeping mopping, etc. can aggravate these joints. Good thing is that they'll settle down without aggressive measures ...Read more
