What Is Lower Back Pain?

Lower Back Pain is an extremely common type of pain that almost everyone will experience at some point in their life. The section of your back that is known as the lower back includes everything from the rib cafe down to the lumbar area. 

The good aspect of back pain is that in many occasions it gets better on its own, and when it is persistant there are fortunately many effective treatments. Stop by our clinic for impactful and fast back pain relief. 

Lower Back Anatomy

Five bones stacked on top of each other with a shock-absorbing disk between each stage make up your "lumbar spine" or low back. For protection, your lower back depends on muscles and ligaments. The effect of these tissues being stretched too hard or too far is "sprains" and "strains".

These are created much like a rope that frays when it is stretched beyond its normal capacity. The word "sprain" means that it has weakened the tough, strong ligaments that keep your bones together, while "strain" means that the muscles or tendons that drive your trunk have been partially broken apart.
