Commonly problems that occur during pregnancy are the result of changes in the shape of the lower back and the increased load of carrying the baby. This can also put pressure on other joints such as the hips and knees which can lead to wear and tear.

Most injuries do not happen with a single traumatic event. Factors which predispose us to injury are usually to do with our posture and lifestyle. Most of us will be relatively sedentary in between intense bursts of activity training in the gym or on a sports ground at the weekend. The fact that most sports injuries are on lower limbs, probably reflects that most sports involve running. Running injuries are particularly common.

The Sciatic nerve runs from your lower back, through the buttock area, down the back of your leg and to your foot. It is a very large nerve and is commonly affected by low back injuries. Often the pain in your leg is worse than your back. Other sensations are common such as pins and needles or numbness and weakness of the leg. The reason it becomes a problem is because it takes a nerve branch from many different levels of your spine, most of these levels are the ones commonly overstrained or injured.

Back and neck pain is the body signalling to us that something is wrong. It is telling us that there is some damage to the tissues around the area of the spine. Pain and restriction on certain movements is the body’s way of preventing further damage.
