What Causes Lower Back Pain?:

What Causes Lower Back Pain? Back pain is tension or stiffness in the lower back (the area between the bottom of the ribs and the top of the legs) but it can also be felt in the neck, shoulders, buttocks and thighs. Sometimes the pain develops for no apparent reason. Some people just wake up one day with a sore back. Typically, the pain eases when you lie down flat, whereas moving, coughing or sneezing makes it worse. While the pain may appear suddenly, the fact is the problem has been developing for months or more likely, years. The reason you have back pain is because your body and spine have been pulled out of their normal position.

What Causes Lower Back Pain?:

What Causes Lower Back Pain? Back pain begins with muscle imbalances that over time create a dysfunction. Your body is then forced to work each day with this dysfunction and eventually it creates a condition, eg herniated disc. The condition causes pain which is your body’s way of alerting you to a problem that needs to be fixed

What Causes Muscle Imbalance?:

What Causes Muscle Imbalance? When a muscle or group of muscles overpowers the opposing muscle(s), you have a muscle imbalance. Think of it as a Tug-of-War. When your muscles are out of balance they pull your bones and joints out of their normal position and this places them under constant and uneven stress. When muscle imbalances pull your spine and body out of alignment, the level of stress on certain muscles, bones and joints increases, pulling you out of balance and a placing tremendous amounts of pressure and wear & tear on your body... especially the vertebrae, discs, spine and its supporting muscles.

Why Do You Have Muscle Imbalance?:

Why Do You Have Muscle Imbalance? Many things contribute to and create muscle imbalances such as how active you are, what activities you do frequently, if you exercise, the exercises you perform, how you sit, stand and walk, if you work, what you do for work, etc. What happens when you drive your car with unbalanced tires or your steering is out of alignment? Your tires will wear down unevenly and quicker than normal and eventually you'll have a blowout... the same is true for your body! Even if you injured your back while lifting something or gardening, it is possible that it isn’t the underlying cause. What caused it was the months and years of uneven pressure and wear and tear on your body caused by muscle imbalances.
