Millions suffer from back pain every year. It can become extremely debilitating and painful. Back pain may be a result of a strained/pulled muscle or muscle spasm which can pinch a nerve creating pain or pain and numbness into your leg. This can also be caused by a herniated disc or change in the integrity of the spine or arthritic conditions. Poor posture can cause alignment issues and abnormal strain and poor muscle strength along the muscles on the front and back of the spine. Back pain can cause increased mobility and strength deficits that affect every day tasks and can affect work and recreational activities as well.
