Low Back Pain
Almost everybody will experience low back pain in some form during his or her lives. Unfortunately the common reaction with low back pain when it occurs is “FEAR”. Fear that they have done irreparable damage and you must protect it and move differently to prevent damaging it further. While this seems logical, it is actually detrimental for long-term recovery.
Low back pain explained
90% of low back pain cases are termed “Non-specific” which means there is no structural damage to the back. Your back is just protecting itself. Take for example; when you injure your ankle, you limp to move around less painfully. This is what we call compensation. The same thing happens on a muscular level when you injury your back. One muscle will over- work to compensate for the pain and protect your back.
