What Causes Peoples Low Back Pain?
The lower abdominal, refered to as the lower back is a complex area that connects the upper body (including the chest and arms) to the lower body (including the pelvis and legs). Lower back pain is extremely common for people of all ages, often triggered by some combination of overuse, strain, or injury. Heavy lifting, stretching and exercise can cause strain, a spasm or a sprain of the lower back. At times patients often just think they slept wrong.
