Lower Back Pain

Similar to the way smoking affects our health, prolonged sitting increases the storage of visceral fat in our bodies. Sitting causes tight hip flexors, weak glute muscles, and an underactive core. Being the bridge between our upper and lower body, the lower back bears the brunt of this imbalance.

The Overuse and Vulnerability of the Lower Back

The lower back is one of the most critical areas in spinal mechanics. It carries the weight of our upper body and is constantly engaged in various movements. Unfortunately, the lower back lacks the same structural integrity as the upper back, making it more susceptible to injuries and pain. Approximately 80% of the population experiences low back pain at some point.

The Link Between Low Back Pain and Arthritis

When we add trauma to the mix, such as accidents or injuries, the risk of developing arthritis in the lower back increases. The constant strain on the joint due to prolonged sitting and inadequate strength in surrounding tissues can also lead to chronic low back pain and even sciatica, characterized by leg pain and discomfort.
