Dr. Suzan Starler, D.C. has enjoyed practicing successfully since 1993, and she loves what she does. When asked what causes low back pain, she frequently says, “Anything can cause anything.”
There are many causes of low back pain – repetitive movements (such as bending and twisting), as commonly seen with golfers or tennis players, or prolonged positions (such as with sitting or standing) as commonly seen with individuals who spend all day in front of a computer, or who stand for hours at a cash register or assembly line, frequently result in low back pain. For more information, you are invited to review the articles listed under “Lower Back Conditions.”
In addition to the above, there are other, less common – and thus commonly missed – reasons for low back pain. Scar tissue from an injury or surgery, for example, may disrupt the nervous system to such an extent that low back pain or pain commonly assumed to originate in the low back (such as sciatica) , may occur. In such cases, the solution may have very little to do with a mechanical solution; it may fall into the arena of neurologic rehabilitation.
