2 Culprits Of Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain can be a disruptor of daily lives. It can also be very difficult to solve.

 These are some of the causes:

  • Tight deep abdominal muscles

  • Tight leg muscles

  • Trigger points

  • Excessive lifting

  • Herniated Disc

  • Sciatica

  • Accident

So many people have had back pain unresolved for a long time because the are just focusing on the back. However, there are two culprits that are so often overlooked.

Neck Tension And Headache

Do you have tight neck and shoulder muscles and always get headaches? Don't ignore, it could be much more!! 

When muscles in the neck get tight, they could reduce blood and oxygen flow to the brain, why? Blood vessels travel along muscles and when the muscles are tight  they contract and restrict the blood which transport nutrients and oxygen throughout the body. Therefore , when this cycle continues to build up over time it creates discomfort and pain. However, there are always solutions. Regular stretching is always an option, as well as other self-help tools that we have.
