Lower Back Pain

Lumbar pain (also known as lower back pain) is most often caused by sprains, strains, and disc degeneration. Although difficult to bear, these issues can often be effectively treated through conservative (non-surgical) approaches, including medication, rest, and physical therapy. In cases where noninvasive care does not alleviate pain or improve mobility, or when there is an underlying condition or disorder, surgery may be required.


While the severity of pain may vary, and although it may be fleeting, there are a number of conditions and diseases that can cause chronic, severe, and debilitating pain. In many cases, these underlying issues can greatly reduce a person’s quality of life.

Individuals may experience symptoms differently.



Treatment for lower back pain depends on a variety of factors and personal preferences.

Please consult with your Hoag physician for a tailored care plan that best suits your situation.
