Today’s episode is entitled “Types of lower back pain” and the main points are:
- Pathological type of lower back pain
- Mechanical radiculopathy type of lower back pain
- Non-specific lower back pain
- How to differentiate between the types
Pathological type of lower back pain
This is the least common of the types. So it’ possible you have a pathology on your lower back causing pain, but this is only the case less than half of the times. Pathology is a disease process that can be metabolic, infection, degeneration or neoplasms (tumors). This isn’t a type you should focus on, unless you answer yes to one or more of the safety questions.
