Causes of Lower Back Pain and How to Treat It


A pilonidal cyst may be the hidden reason for your lower back pain.

A pilonidal cyst looks like a lump or swelling which forms along the typhoon and appears at the bottom of your tailbone. It occurs when hair punctures the skin so the ingrown hair irritates the skin and causes inflammation. Once the irritated cyst gets infected, it can cause severe pain.

These cysts occur predominantly in men, at the age between the ages 16-25 years. The most common symptoms of pilonidal cyst include lower back pain, fever, redness in the affected part and tenderness in the lower spine.

Fortunately, you can treat this condition naturally. Try the following natural remedies to treat pilonidal cysts and reduce your lower back pain.

It balances your body’s pH level, detoxifies your body and prevents DNA damage. All you have to do is put a cotton pad in apple cider vinegar. Then, apply the soaked cotton pad on the affected area. Do this treatment a few times in a day.
