Fortunately, it can be successfully prevented or relieved in the vast majority of cases, no matter your age. To this end, you need to be aware of back pain causes and available therapies.
When you experience dull aching or stabbing sensations in the lower back, it’s strained muscles, arthritis, or osteoporosis that are most often to blame. In addition to growing discomfort in the affected area, they may lead to tingling and sciatica in your legs. These conditions can make movement extremely painful, which is why they need to be addressed once noticed.
Lumbar disk disease is another major cause of back pain. Think of this disk as a sponge between vertebrae that serves to help your spine carry the loads applied to it. Like a shock absorber in running shoes, it reduces the pressure on your nerves, making for the normal flexibility and movement.

Although this therapy can hardly fix the deteriorated disk, it will bring temporary to complete back pain relief and stimulate your body to repair itself without surgery.
Most patients describe the effects of PEMF therapy as immediate and tout it for its convenience of use. As you’re not required to have the expert knowledge to receive it, you can benefit from the healing power of magnetic fields even on your commute. PEMF devices are easy-to-operate and suitable for at-home applications.
