The causes of lower back pain can be elusive. Often pain is the result of years of improper movement due to postural misalignments in the body. In this video Pete Egoscue, founder of the Egoscue Method for stopping chronic pain and author of the book Pain Free, assesses one man’s lower back pain and shows how shoulder alignment and a concave curvature of the spine contribute to the issue. He then goes on to demonstrate a few simple movements that can help correct the spinal positioning and restore comfort in the body. Watch and see how the body adjusts instantly to this gentle conditioning.
