I can’t even tell you how many cases of chronic lower back pain we’ve seen with absolutely no injury event to go with it.
When your lower back hurts for no obvious reason there is an underlying health problem causing it. It’s never strictly a back problem.
The unfortunate issue is what happens next - FEAR to move!
Remember, pain does not equal injury and injury does not equal pain. Pain is a result of the nervous systems interpretation of the current state of health. It’s based on many variables not just biomechanical ones. And the level of pain you feel does not represent the severity of the issue. Pain lives in the brain not the body part!
Has some jerk ever said to you “it’s all in your head!?” Well, it kinda is.
