Low back pain is among the 10 most common diseases and injuries in the world. It is the leading cause of work absence and activity limitation around much of the world! Missed days of work impose high economic burden on individuals, families and communities.
Currently, low back pain is treated primarily with pain killers, but the cause of low back pain is rarely addressed. The cause of your low back pain is dependent on a variety of factors including but not limited to; occupation, posture, activity level, nutrition, muscle imbalance, and degenerative changes. Typically, low back pain is secondary to improper motion of the vertebrae in low back. Lack of motion can cause surrounding areas to compensate as well as muscle spasm.
