Low back pain – those three little words that make us all cringe. It’s estimated that over 70% of people will experience low back pain in their lifetime. Often, it can be debilitating, preventing us from doing many of the activities we love like walking, swimming, gardening or running.
Several different structures contribute to low back pain including discs, joints, muscles, nerves and ligaments. Pain might be local to the area, more towards the back of the hip or down to the leg. Symptoms might also include feelings of numbness, tingling or weakness.
