Low back pain
Hyperlordotic lumbar spine with facet loading posture
Low back pain is a common problem, affecting around one-third of the UK adult population each
Year1. For some there is an obvious cause e.g. injury or trauma, for others this is not the case i.e. perhaps a result of their lifestyle and the postures they adopt day to day.
The lower back has a natural curve called a lordosis, this provides a shock absorbing benefit, like a spring effect, however for some this postural curve can become too pronounced, almost exaggerated. This hyper-lordosis in combination with lifestyle and postures can result in lower back stiffness, muscle tightness and core muscle deconditioning. In some cases the pain can be severe and travel down the nerves in your legs.
