Chronic low back pain is a very common and debilitating condition. The low back is a complex connection of weight bearing structures that needs to be balanced to perform its job. To often those with low back pain have been told only that they have arthritis and degenerative disc disease. Others are told that there is little evidence for the low back pain on imaging because they don’t have degenerative disc or arthritis. The problem with this is that the disc and facet degeneration is the end result of the main problem not the problem itself. If we want to control back pain, biomechanics and stabilizing structures must be healthy and strong. Treating this condition with physical therapy can be very helpful but if there is a stabilizing structure that is too weak the muscles will not be able to strengthen around it. Treatment can not progress until the body is stable. Alternatively getting stability back without strengthening with therapy will end in the back pain returning quickly as well.
