MESSAGES TO
Zi Ai from Singapore asked a question

What should I do next if my back hurts when I bend forward?

I am a 26 years old female. Today, I suddenly realised that my left lower back/hip hurts when I bend forward and then back straight at a certain angle. However, there is no pain past the angle. May I know what happened, what's the cause and what can I do to alleviate it?

Dear Zai Zai

Thank you for your question - it’s certainly a common problem that we see in clinic!

It sounds from what you have said that there is a potential overlap of pain generators - it could be your back and equally it could be your hip!  

Often, it can be difficult to differentiate one from the other without an assessment of your symptoms (how did it come on, where does the pain localise to, is there any spreading of the pain and what makes it worse) together with a thorough clinical examination (of your back and hips).

Pain around this area could come from:

1. The hip joint

2. Muscles around the hip

3. Your sacro-iliac joints

4. Your lower back muscles

5. Your lower...

Dear Zi Ai, 

Thank you for your question, and thanks to Dr Dinesh for the very useful tips on back pain. There are potentially many causes of your lower back and/or hip pain.

It is important to differentiate the origin of the pain, and a thorough physical examination and history of the symptoms would be important.

Radiological imaging such as an MRI would be also useful in identifying the cause of the pain, and then we can start you on proper treatment. Many a times, medication and physiotherapy would suffice in alleviating the symptoms. Proper back care is important as well.

If the pain is persistent, it would be useful for you to consult a doctor, and then we can help toward working out the cause of the pain.

Hope this is useful.

Dr Sean Ng
