Millions of people suffer from chronic back pain.
It is estimated that about 80% of the population will experience back pain during their lifetime. About 7% of these will suffer from chronic back pain. I have trained clients who suffer from this, ages ranging from 20-70 years. Regardless of gender or age, one can focus on limiting the effects or in some cases, depending on the cause, eliminate the pain completely.
The cause of chronic back pain can include mechanical problems, diseases, and health conditions.
Some of the most common causes are:
Osteoarthritis or rheumatism
Slipped Disc or herniated disc
A tumor (rare)
In my experience, clients that suffer from chronic back pain are lacking muscular balance, core strength, flexibility, or have degenerative disc disease and ostepathithis.
