What is the cause of lower back pain?
Your spine and back are made up of such delicate and complicated structure of muscles, bones, joints and nerves, so it’s no wonder that it can sometimes malfunction. Most back pain appears as a result of minor strains and pinched or irritated nerves. These problems usually result from postural problems such as sitting for long periods of time, hunching or slouching, bending awkwardly for long periods of time or lifting and carrying incorrectly.
Symptoms of lower back pain?
The severity of back pain can vary hugely from person to person, with some experiencing a dull ache in the small of their back, while for others it can lead to excruciating pain and lack of mobility.
