Lumbar spine pain is one of the most common reasons for visiting a physiotherapeutic / osteopathic office. Every second person complains about soreness in the lower part of the back. Regardless of age, both elderly and young people suffer from it. The main symptom is pain of a local or radiating nature, morning stiffness, limited mobility, the feeling of a high tension in the lumbar region.
What could be the cause of this widespread phenomenon?
Unfortunately, there is no clear answer to this question. There may be numerous reasons for it: lack of physical activity or significant overtraining, incorrect work ergonomics, many hours spent in a seemingly comfortable sitting position, degenerative changes due to overload, mechanical injuries, disc degeneration, posture defects, and even eating disorders may have a large and significant impact on the lumbar spine. Luckily, physiotherapy and osteopathy come to the rescue, using various methods and techniques on daily basis, to help with this haunting / tiring / tormenting disorder.
