Common Causes of Low-Back Pain

Long stretches of time spent sitting needs to be balanced with periodic movement. Strengthening our muscles through exercise, stretching, and regular use will enhance our bodies, our longevity, and our mental health. Get up from your seat and avoid these common causes of lumbar pain:

Putting stress on wrong part of body

As we age, we are more prone to ailment, especially if we allow ourselves to become less active or even sedentary. When our muscles aren’t being used, the neurological connections from our brains to our muscles wear down. So when the muscle is suddenly in use again, the brain doesn’t recognize the movement and misfires, resulting in pain.
