Back pain is a major global challenge. Almost anyone might have a great chance of suffering a disabling back injury regardless of occupation. The lumbar spine supports the upper body and transmits the weight of the upper body to the pelvis and lower limbs. Because of the strategic location of the lumbar spine, this structure should be included in any examination of the spine as a whole (i.e., posture) or in any examination of the hip or sacroiliac joints. Unless there is a definite history of trauma, it is often difficult to determine whether an injury originates in the lumbar spine, sacroiliac joints, or hip joints; therefore, all three should be examined in a sequential fashion.
Some of the common diagnoses lower back and pelvis conditions are:
Lumbar discopathy, Sacroiliac joint dysfunction, Osteoarthritis, spondylolisthesis, myofascial trigger points.
