What we can do to help you if you suffer from lower back pain?

Lower back pain is mainly caused by a lack of proper posture and is often triggered by a false movement, as silly as bending over to pick up a pen.

Common symptoms such as sciatica (pain in the back of the leg), femoral nerve entrapment (pain in the fore side of the leg) or meralgia (pain on the external fore side of the leg) are consequences of an old untreated back complaint.

In most situations, the underlying causes of lower back pain are a misbalance of the hips and a general wrong posture (work, sleep, etc.).

A publication in September 2015 studied the efficacy of functional techniques and spinal manipulations to treat chronic low back pain.

Another publication of February 2015 proved spinal manual-thrust manipulation to offer greater pain reduction than usual medical care, on low back pain.
