The spinal column
Back pain, a public health problem. 80% of all Germans suffer from back pain at least once in their lives. In 40% of those affected, the pain is recurrent or never goes away at all. There are many different causes, and they’re linked to our lifestyles and general living conditions. Poor posture, predominantly seated activities, insufficient muscular stabilization of the thoracic and cervical spine, insufficient exercise, obesity, stress and poor nutrition are some of the risk factors that may contribute to back pain.
How can back pain be treated? Scientific studies from around the world show that active treatment programs in which the patient engages in exercise can successfully alleviate back pain and are superior to passive treatment programs.
Core strength and strength in the area of the thoracic and cervical spine is key: many patients suffering from back pain exhibit not only very low strength levels but also muscle imbalances that may contribute to back pain and prevent it from going away.
