Muscle problems are the most common cause of lower back pain
This rather large category can refer to tangible, definable problems like muscle and tendon strains and ligament sprains to the more nebulous muscle problems that result from years of neglect and mistreatment. Regardless, it goes without saying that your muscles are the main support for your spine- any problems in the musculature are going to directly affect the integrity of your spinal cord; the knock-on effect will come to define the way you feel and function in all activities. Therefore, controlling for muscle problems in the lower back is a signal way of increasing your overall wellbeing.
Resolving muscle problems in the lower back
This may seem like a monumental task, especially when your back is knotted up from years, decades perhaps, of poor posture and the daily stresses of life. However, we have to start somewhere, and start we will, in order to prevent you from going even further down the path towards an old age of spinal problems. The important thing to remember is that whatever state your spine is in now is the best vantage point you will have to work from. Each passing day the stresses pile on further, meaning that you are working from more of a deficit. If you start taking care of your back now, you can avoid a lot of the discomfort that comes along with spinal degeneration, including the life-altering process of spinal surgery.
