Identifying the Causes of Low Back Pain
Even though back pain is one of the most common complaints we hear, the exact causes differ from patient to patient. The rib cage, pelvis and hips all influence the forces on the lower back and spine.
A complex neuro-muscular system controls the posture and movement of these structures and will create abnormal stresses on the spine if all parts are not working together efficiently. This inefficiency or misalignment results in poor posture, dysfunctional movement patterns, muscle spasms, soft tissue restrictions, inability to stabilize the spine, core muscle weakness, breathing disorders, and overloading of the structures in the lumbar spine. If these dysfunctional movement patterns are not identified and treated properly, lower back pain and spine injuries will occur due to the constant microtrauma to the structures of the lower back and spine.
