Back problems are common conditions. Estimates from the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2014–15 National Health Survey show about 3.7 million Australians (16% of the population) have back problems. It is estimated that 70–90% of people will suffer from lower back pain in some form at some point in their lives.
Why is back pain so prevalent?
The common reasons for back pain is, idiopathic (meaning no specific cause). Rather, the accumulation of little things over our lifetime build to a bigger problem over time.
Minor injuries result in abnormal motion within the joints, this causes abnormal weight bearing or stress loading within the joints. Overtime the body’s protection mechanisms leads to spasms, scar tissue and limited motion. The end result?
