Back

Low back injuries are known all too well to most of us, especially in administrative occupations. Low back injuries can stem from two different causes. The most recognizable are structural issues with the spine itself. The second, but mostly unnoticed is the hips.

The core musculature protects the lower back, a weak and supporting core, and hips will de-stabilize the spine and can cause pain in the lower back area. Structural issues with the spine need to be ruled out before starting an exercise therapy programs, especially if you’ve had related issues in the past. The range of motion can be limited in both instances of low back pain.

More often than not, low back pain is related to lack of activity and dormant core and spinal muscles due to lack of activation. Hips support the low back and with inactive glutes, the low back lacks that support. Keeping a well-activated core and hip area is key to reducing unnecessary low back pain. Also, mobility exercises to keep the hips moving and the spine neutral are key factors that have to do with correct posture and movement pattern, which will help reduce the potential for injury.
