Low back pain originates from poor posture, bad ergonomics, obesity, lifting objects that are too heavy, and constipation. Muscle tightness in the low back usually is a result of compensation for weak abdominal muscles. Sometimes the hips are a different height or they become twisted, both due to muscle imbalances. The psoas muscle plays a major role in these. NeuroKinetic Therapy corrective movement system works great for this.
When pain spreads across the top of the buttocks and one feels like their back could break, this indicates a strain of the sacroiliac joint. Again NeuroKinetic Therapy corrective movement system is essential. Sometimes support belts are necessary in the beginning of treatment. These can be easily purchased locally. Sciatica is a condition in which nerve pain is in the buttock or travels down the back or side of the leg. It can be caused by over tight deep gluteal muscles or a nerve impingement in the lumbar spine.
