Glut Max, where you sit causing your pain in your back

Throughout our daily lives, it's almost expected to have low back pain, mainly everyone expects it one point or another. For most people they believe the pain is from the back, which is normally true, but the matter of fact, most of the time it is your body's inability to properly move your leg causing your low back to over work and place more stresses on it. This happens since a powerful muscle called the gluteus maximus, which is the main mover for making your leg swing back, becomes weakened or unable to perform its action. This in turn causes your back to arch making your back muscles have to move your leg stopping it from stabilizing your spine, which in turn causes your low back pain.

This is a fairly common problem to see within the office, and easily treated if looked after and worked on. In Chiropractic, I focus on the muscles not working and the joints not moving, to restore the lost ability the gluteus maximus had. The article attached shows a fairly recent study where working on the gluteus maximus muscle in addition to the core muscles with long standing low back pain had a huge effect in helping low back pain and in a lot of those cases making it a non issue for those patients.
