Low Back Pain and neck pain are the most common forms of back pain

Most low back pain is caused by overuse and injury, but lifestyle can play a huge factor in low back pain. 

Consider this: If you sleep approximately 8 hours a night, given commuting, eating, tv watching, and desk work, you may sit 91% of your day, which over time reduces and even eliminates your natural low back curve, due to the remolding of the spine and its "plastic" quality. 

This amount of sitting puts a great deal of pressure on the discs of the spine and over time can compress the disc and reduce the natural space between the vertebra of the low back

On top of this, the disc of the spine do not receive blood flow, so they get nutrients by movement of the spine itself. 

This is why healthy movement is so important. 

A lot of low back pain is manageable and even preventable by simply walking and moving healthfully throughout your day. If sit all day long, and drive long distance, then you will likely have to interrupt your day with a wonderful walk, if you'd like to manage your lifestyle-induced low back pain

While out for a walk, stop and reach to the sky and breath deeply. This simple movement can help. 

If this doesn't work for you, then call. You likely have something else going on that needs some attention. Low back pain can be caused by muscular tension, disc degeneration, herniated discs, disjointed vertebra, kidney pain, osteoporosis, arthritis, and more.
