Back pain is probably one of the most common complaints we hear. We’ve all experienced it at some point whether we have been able to pin point the cause or not. It can be acute or it can gradually happen over time and although back pain can be specific, the causes and treatments will vary from person to person because biomechanically we are different in our habits, activities and daily repetition. Today we will give you the brief break down on what back pain is, possible causes and strength and postural exercises/alignment to prevent the reoccurrence of injuries to the back.
