Burning lower back pain, although less common, it is actually probably the easiest type of lower back pain to ease and remove. Read on to find out the main cause of your pain and what you can do now to ease it.
The 2 most burning questions you probably have are ...
What causes burning lower back pain?
The burning pain is a result of a few lower back muscles being both tired and tight. This may sound unusual; in fact it is the actual mechanism that leads to chronic muscle tightness.
When muscles tire they tighten. When your lower back muscles strain to work they tire, tighten and then burn. It is the same situation as if you were to sit against a wall, with your back straight and knees bent. After a while your thigh muscles will quiver and shake, they will then burn as the muscles tire and eventually the muscle will give up and fail.
With burning back pain, the same mechanism is in play...
The burning pain is due to this muscle tiredness which is created by the 4 main causes of any back pain. Which are tight and weak muscles, poor joint movement and pelvic imbalance. As joints fail to move correctly, and as your pelvis twists and distorts, muscles are forced to work harder. They tire and then the burning sensation develops.
Lower back pain that burns may feel uncomfortable and be worrying, in fact it is easy to remove and ease. This leads you to the second burning question...
How can you Ease your Burning Back Pain?
To ease your burning pain, you need to stimulate the muscle strength. This relates more to its nerve and blood supply than the actual physical strength.
To prevent the pain returning requires you to target all the factors causing it. You need to get the joints moving freely, relax the tight muscles, stimulate the nerve and blood supply to the weak muscles and rebalance your pelvis.
Stimulating the muscles is still the main focus to stop the burn now, and probably the easiest to do.
For your lower back there is a reflex just out from your spine. There is a dimple or bony prominence at the base of your spine and to the side. This area holds a reflex that stimulates the common lower back muscles that burn.
All you need to is rub this reflex gently but firmly for 10-15 seconds in a circular motion. Just doing this can ease the pain quickly.
The most common mistake people make though is not finding the cause of your pain. If you don't know which muscles are causing the burn, then you will not succeed at easing the pain.
What is the best approach to ease your burning lower back pain?
To get long lasting results you must both remove the symptoms and the cause. First you must identify which spinal imbalances are present, then attack the symptomatic processes. This can be achieved by using many techniques from ice/heat, Acupressure and anti-inflammatory measures. Then you must perform corrective techniques that target the spinal imbalances.
The principles of Spinal Balancing address the both the pain and the root cause of the condition that is responsible for your lower right back pain. Through self assessments, your individual spinal imbalances can be identified, and a targeted corrective program can be developed for your specific needs.
