What causes Low Back Pain?

Prolonged sitting, poor posture, sleep position, stress, lack of exercise, tight hamstrings, weak core… the list goes on. Perhaps a better question is, what doesn’t cause back pain?

How can we relieve Low Back Pain?

Stretching and Physical Activity greatly reduce low back pain. Bringing motion and blood flow into the back helps combat the stiffness and tension. People often think exercise will aggravate their back pain and make it worse, but it is actually the opposite. Inactivity adds to the stiffness. Start loosening up with some simple stretches!
