Lower back pain is a common health problem in the United States. It is brought on for a number of reasons, with the most common reasons being that people are simply not strong enough to hold themselves up. Other reasons include stress due to picking heavy items up repeatedly, not stretching properly on a regular basis, repetitive movements, and sitting in one position for long periods of time without a break. When people go to their practitioner for help with these issues they are often told to go to physical therapy and given narcotics to relieve the pain. The problem with this type of treatment is that people don’t often continue to do physical therapy exercises on their own and they can become addicted to opioids after taking pain medication. One easy and fun way to solve this problem in is to do yoga for lower back pain.
