The lower back is the most common area of pain experienced by adults in our society; the lack of appropriate exercise sets up the average person for trouble. Prolonged sitting postures and typical imbalances in muscle strength and flexibility speed up the approaching trouble. The mistake we often make is to blame this type of problem on age or degenerative changes in the joints (arthritis). Unless you are extremely old, or severely arthritic, lower back pain is usually correctable at least partially if not fully.
People often make the mistake of believing the assessment of their friends, neighbors, or even well meaning health care providers who tell them that they have to live with pain. At Axis Health we see a steady stream of lower back pain problems and successfully give people their lives back.
