Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Wed, Mar 26, 2014 @ 04:23 PM

These pains are usually not severe and dissipate with time. However, this fact should not make you undermine the seriousness of back pain, particularly if it is persistence. If your back pain does not ease with time or worsens, leading to numbness and tingly feeling radiating to your legs or arms, you should consult your doctor.

Causes & Treatments for Back Spasms

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Tue, Feb 11, 2014 @ 02:24 PM

The lumbar area supports your body, and pain in this area can range from limiting and irritating to chronic and debilitating. When you stand your lumbar area bears the weight of the upper body.
