Back Pain When Standing Up

Back Pain When Standing Up

We often take our leg and core muscles for granted until a problem arises. When you find yourself having trouble getting up from a seated or crouched position, for example, it’s time to investigate the underlying issue. In this article, we are going to talk about the possible causes of muscle pain that prevents you from standing up from a crouched or sitting position.

Leg Muscle Issues

If you are unable to stand up from a crouching position, this most likely indicates an issue with your leg muscles. The underlying cause of this issue can be one of many things. It could be the result of a muscle sprain or strain. If this is the case, the issue will typically resolve on its own given enough time and rest.

Let weakness and an inability to stand from a crouched position can also be a sign of an issue in the spine. Pinched spinal nerves can cause pain and loss of feeling in the lower extremities. This, in turn, can make it hard for a person to stand up when sitting or in a crouched position.

Steps to Improvement

If you are finding it difficult to stand from a crouched or sitting position, there are several treatment options available to you. DIY home exercises can help strengthen your leg and core muscles. However, if the issue is caused by a spinal nerve, no amount of exercise is going to fix the issue for good. Visit a doctor, and if you are diagnosed with a spinal impingement, consider surgery.
