For the majority of people living with low back pain the exact cause is unknown. A great diagnosis that was used through my training was non specific low back pain. A set of symptoms that cause your low back to hurt. No real diagnosis, no real prognosis.
This pain is often a result of repetitive micro trauma, tears and weakness in soft tissue structures (discs, ligaments, muscles) that have developed over the years through pour postures, obesity, or perhaps even factors at work. There are however certain risks and predisposing factors that can make one more likely to be a sufferer of low back pain. Our age, our job, our kids, genetics?
