Wellness Expert Newsletter • Why Does My Back Hurt? • Exercise Essentials • Patient Results • Two Simple Tests
Are you like many people, with an aching back at the end of the day or worried about lifting an object due to your back going out? You are not alone, over 80% of the population will suffer back pain at one time or another in their life. It is the price we pay for walking upright on two legs. However, the majority of back pain is non-specific, meaning that there is not a primary cause, such as a fracture or disc herniation.
As physical therapists, we know that a high percentage of people suffering with back pain actually have 3 common problems or a combination of them all: • Poor posture • Weak core and gluteus muscles • Poor hip flexibility
