About Lower Back Pain
Unfortunately, many patients suffer from debilitating lower back pain, which is usually caused by an injury, strain, or a previous health problem, such as arthritis or a fractured vertebra. Additionally, you might experience back pain if you lift heavy objects on a job or from poor posture when sitting in a chair. All of these factors can greatly impact your spine’s health and lower back.
