Causes of Low Back Pain
What are the causes of low back pain? Do you know what is actually creating the lower back pain you suffer? More importantly do you know what you can do about it?
Read on to understand what causes your low back pain and more importantly how you can remove them.
Lower back pain is actually the second most common reason to see your doctor. The statistics say that over 80% of adults will suffer from back pain, that right now over 7% of adults are in pain as you read this.
The causes of low back pain have never changed; the solutions to your lower back pain are also the same. The question you were asking was...
What are the causes of lower back pain?
There are actually 4 main causes of lower back pain. You have muscles that have become tight; there are other muscles that have weakened. There are joints not moving correctly and your pelvis becomes out of balance.
Combined these 4 main factors create your lower back pain.
The reason why these factors start is another matter. Muscles tire as they become over worked, this can occur from as much physical exertion as it does mental stress. When the muscle tires, it will tighten up.
Once a muscle tightens, as it is attached to a joint, the joint will fail to move properly. Then finally because your pelvis compensates for muscular and joint distortions, it twists and distorts as your muscles and joints become out of balance.
This may sound complex, but is actually a very simple process, and one that is easily fixed.
The problem is this - once the distortion patterns exist, other muscles and joint will become involved. This is why for most people back pain occurs over a period of time.
Just like a chain reaction, your back starts with minor distortion patterns. Then with time these increase until one day you lift, bend or twist and notice back pain.
This leads you to a more important question...
How can you remove the causes of low back pain?
To remove these 4 main factors you need to learn techniques that address them. You need to learn to stretch effectively, simple ways to stimulate the nerve and blood supply to your muscles so they can build their strength. You need to be taught self adjustive techniques to get your joints moving freely and simple and quick ways to rebalance your pelvis.
However the first step in back pain relief is not removing the causes. It is finding which type of distortion pattern you have. If not you will not know what or where to target for back pain relief.
What is the best approach to ease your low back pain?
To get long lasting results you must both remove the symptoms and the cause. First you must identify which spinal imbalances are present, then attack the symptomatic processes. This can be achieved by using many techniques from ice/heat, Acupressure and anti-inflammatory measures. Then you must perform corrective techniques that target the spinal imbalances.
The principles of Spinal Balancing address the both the pain and the root cause of the condition that is responsible for your lower right back pain. Through self assessments, your individual spinal imbalances can be identified, and a targeted corrective program can be developed for your specific needs.
