There are two specific types of lumbago pain, specifically, acute (pain can be sudden and severe and comes and goes) or chronic, lasting over three months. Lumbago can strike anyone, but people who perform physically strenuous work and individuals of retirement age are extremely susceptible. For less serious forms of lumbago, i.e. the kind that has no underlying, harmful cause, there is an assortment of non-surgical treatments including acupuncture, exercise, painkillers and the use of at antidepressants. However, these treatments can sometime be invasive or have side effects that are as debilitating as lumbago itself.  What are the symptoms of Lumbago? The major symptoms of lumbago that manifest around the time of complaint are the limitation in the movement of the spine, radial pain across the lower back that spreads down to the buttocks, thighs or groin, spasms that can cause a stiffening of the back, a tilting of the back that makes an individual change their posture and tingling or numbness in the back or buttock areas. Sadly, only 25 percent of lumbago suffers can locate the source of their pain and discomfort. For the rest, the cause may be difficult to identify. What causes Lumbago? For the few who may be able to ascertain the reasons behind their Lumbago, the causes can vary. Strain is a very common cause of lower back pain and can be prevented with the use of proper back support during physical exertions. Some people may discover that their lower backache is caused by Osteoarthritis or even osteoporosis (the formation of brittle bones due to the depletion of calcium). Others may find that they have a slipped disc or an abnormal curvature of the spine called scoliosis. In some rare instances, there may be some skeletal damage due to the growth of tumors or an infection. Early indications that you have developed lumbago with serious implications are the inability to control your bladder or bowel movements or reduced strength or muscle bulk in one or both legs. If muscle bulk is reduced and accompanied by numbness in the lower back or legs, seek a doctor's attention immediately to prevent permanent debilitating damage to the spine. Will Painwave X4000 help with Lumbago? Yes indeed! Painwave X4000 is a highly advanced pain elimination system that utilizes a non-invasive, drug-free method to provide relief from Lumbago. Unlike over the counter medication or highly invasive treatments like acupuncture, Painwave X4000 works with the body's own bioelectromagnetic ecosystem to ease discomfort. Painwave X4000 also has no side effects to speak of, and is extremely easy to use. All one has to do is take the unit in hand and gently guide it across the surface of the skin in a small circular motion. After a short period of time, the Painwave X4000 will stimulate blood circulation, improve cell activity and create greater lymphatic movements. In many cases, this stimulation will greatly reduce or eliminate pain for good. Note: The information provided in this guide is not meant to replace the professional advice of a physician.
