Around 80% of people will experience back pain at some stage in their life. For some, chronic back pain can have a detrimental effect on their lifestyle. Back pain can often affect your ability to perform even the most simple daily tasks.
Most of the causes of back pain have nothing to do with your back. If someone is treating only your back they are missing the big picture.
There are 5 places that back pain can come from, and only one of them is actually from your back:
posterior chain - calf, hamstrings, and buttocks
anterior chain - quads, hip flexors, and abdomen
the back itself
