WHAT CAUSES LOW BACK PAIN?

Low back pain can be caused by many things, but is most commonly brought about by lifting, twisting movements that cause inflammation to surrounded musculature and/or joints. Being the foundation of the spine and arguably the epicentre of spinal stability the lower back is often placed under immense amounts of mechanical stress and strain in day to day living.

Other causes of Low Back Pain related directly to the musculature involved in spinal stabilization. The most important muscles in relation to spinal stability are the Transverse Abdominus, Multifidus and the Pelvic Floor Musculature. If a weakness or over-activity of these spinal stabilizing muscles occur it can affect the whole kinetic chain. One of the key assessment tools the Wellbeing Chiropractors in Melbourne assess and treat is finding and fixing muscle imbalances in the low back
