What Causes Lower Back Pain in Women and How to Treat It
There is no shortage of things that might be a cause of lower back pain in women. Lifting a heavy object, twisting or moving suddenly might strain the muscle or ligaments of the back, causing a female low back pain as well as stiffness and possibly muscle spasms. Such injuries are common causes of upper back pain in women as well. The compression this low-back brace applies can soothe painful inflammation and encourage healing.
Another possible source of lower back pain in young women is pressure on the nerves, especially the sciatic nerve, which causes pain, tingling and numbness in the low back that branches to the hips, buttocks and legs. Typically, sciatica affects just one side of the body, so this is often a cause of either lower right side or lower left side back pain in women, but not both. It is usually pressured by a herniated disc or a bone spur. While a doctor can address the cause of such pressure on the nerve, the good posture this lumbar brace makes one adhere to as well as the support it provides can make this a helpful component of treatment.
Stress fractures in the vertebra of the back can cause slipping of these discs known as spondylolisthesis, which may pressure the spinal cord or nerve roots. This may also lead to radiating pain and numbness, resulting in right or left lower back pain in females. This is just one example of instances where degenerative changes in the back that might cause pain or pressure the nerve roots, causing left or right lower back pain in women. The lumbar spine, especially, is subject to a high degree of stress that over time can lead to cartilage erosion, stress fractures, etc. Wearing a brace for lower back support that also provides abdominal compression can reduce the amount of pressure on the lumbar spine and limit any harmful movements.
An abnormal curve to the spine due to a deformity present from birth, degenerative changes or poor posture like kyphosis, lordosis or scoliosis can also lead to both low and upper back pain. In some cases this can be fixed, possibly with the help of a back brace, and in other cases treatment focuses on slowing the progression of the problem.
Cartilage erosion or too much motion at the sacroiliac (SI) joint (often due to pregnancy) can lead to SI joint dysfunction that can cause lower back and groin pain in women. Generally this discomfort is isolated to one side, so pain in the lower left or lower right back of a female would be more common than discomfort across one’s entire low back. BraceAbility offers a number of pregnancy back supports and maternity braces.
Being overweight or obese also increases the amount of stress on the spine and tissues of the back, accelerating degenerative changes of its tissues, increasing lordosis of the spine and increasing one’s risk of back injury.
As one ages, the spine becomes more prone to injury. Therefore, it is important to engage in low-impact exercises to keep the back strong and limber and to be conscientious of maintaining good posture so as not to increase existing strain on the back.
And as you can see, wearing women’s back braces can help with a number of these sources of back pain as they ease stress on the low back and apply compression that stimulates healing and reduces inflammation. It also promotes good posture which is ideal to preventing further damage.
Of course, one should seek professional help for a diagnosis and treatment recommendations, especially in instances of severe lower back pain in women.
