What are the Common Causes of Low Back Pain?
What Can You Do to Prevent Back Pain?
Studies have shown that poor hip strength, decreased motion in the middle back, and decreased motion in the hips are all risk factors for having low back pain.
You do not have to live with low back pain. In many instances, it can be fixed with proper movement patterns.

"2017 is about committing to your health & getting back to the activities you love. You know it needs to be done...let's get after it!"
THERE IS A REASON 80% OF PEOPLE SUFFER FROM LOW BACK PAIN & OVER 33% HAVE A SECOND EPISODE OF PAIN. HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS ARE NOT ADDRESSING THE CAUSE OF OUR CLIENT'S PROBLEMS.
The reason he was experiencing low back pain was because he spent the majority of his day in a flexed low back posture. He rode his bike to work, would inevitably sit in a slouched posture at work, and found himself working late night in bed on his computer. All of these activities biased his low back into a flexed position. When he needed to pick something up off the ground, his body performed the same flexed pattern, which eventually became painful. Through good communication identifying which activities increased his symptoms, within minutes we were able to decrease his pain by 50%.

He is experiencing minimal pain throughout the work day after our the first 3 sessions. We are finally addressing the cause of his pain, and getting him back to enjoying his normal activities. Through targeted hip strengthening, we are addressing the issue preventing him from skiing. Additionally, he has begun using a small pillow under his low back while at work to avoid the chronic flexed position. These modifications and exercises are enabling him to return to his activities.
