Low back pain, discomfort or stiffness is something that osteopaths will see in 50% of our patients on a daily basis. Low back pain is so often an on-going problem and can be the result of subtle stresses and/or previous trauma. Contributing factors can include accidents, sleep patterns, lifestyle stresses, anxiety, work, physical activities, genetics, diet, previous injury/illnesses – the list is endless! Our overall health can be affected by many intertwining factors, and this often results in muscle, joint and nerve pain, commonly low back pain.
