A patient comes into the clinic that is experiencing low back pain. The patient states the pain gets worse when they are in prolonged positions and that movement makes the pain better. The patient states that they can no longer bend over without feeling a catch and release in their low back and that they have no numbness or tingling going down their leg. What diagnosis is the patient experiencing?
The patient is experiencing instability of the lumbar spine. The key indicators are that they cannot remain in prolonged positions as their muscles are not able to keep the spine joints in the neutral zone, making the patient rely on the intrinsic anatomy and the elastic zone of the joint. More testing would have to be done to rule out the SI joint and thoracic spine, but from the little information above, you should be thinking instability based on the few buzz words given.
