LOW BACK PAIN
If you have back pain, you are not alone. 4 out of 5 people in the U.S. will have an episode low back pain (LBP) at some point in their lives and LBP is 2nd only to the common cold as a cause of lost work time. Back pain can range from a dull, deep ache or sharp, sudden burning. Acute back pain occurs suddenly and normally lasts less than three weeks. If it lasts longer than three months, back pain is classified as chronic.

In many cases back pain is self-inflicted, the result of bad habits. This is usually due to poor control of spinal stability, poor posture and poor body mechanics. These faulty movement patterns cause excessive and prolonged stress to be placed on the soft tissues that make up your spine. Related causes of back pain include: improper lifting techniques, core weakness and abdominal/back muscle weakness. Additionally, auto injuries, sports injuries, work injuries or any trauma to the spine can also cause back pain.

Your Anatomy
The spinal column consists of 24 vertebrae that make up the cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions along with the sacrum, which connects to the pelvis at the base of the spine. The intervertebral discs are situated between each vertebra for cushioning and the facet joints function to guide and limit movement of each spinal segment. Looking at a picture of the human spine and its relationship to the skeleton (Fig. 1) you will notice how the lower back (lumbar region) is a narrow column of bone, upon which rests the entire upper body including the head and thorax. It is the structure of the skeleton with this natural lack of boney support in the lumbar spine, which dictates the need for core stability to prevent low back pain.

Your Pain
As mentioned above, most back pain is due to poor control of spinal stability, meaning you are having difficulty controlling your spine with your core muscles during functional activities. Usually this creates faulty posture, deficient body mechanics and less than optimal lifting techniques.
