You are not alone on this one . I personally suffered a paragliding accident in Africa resulting in a compression wedge fracture of my third lumbar vertebrae and have some serious and realistic insights into this epidemic currently plaguing our nation leading oftentimes to unnecessary , inappropriate and unsuccessful surgery or worse to pain med addictions .
I trained at the highest level with the Mckenzie Institute international ( see WWW. Mckenzie MDT, org ) on Back pain and neck pain in the method that is the most scientifically researched physical therapy modality used.
There are answers to the question and confusion about what is known as non specific lower back pain and I can help you understand them.
