Most incidents of low back pain occur without injury, and are the result of repetitive overuse, usually due to poor posture and movement patterns i.e. poor lifting technique. Repetitive overuse strain of the muscles and soft-tissues of the hip and groin are common, particular in jumping sports such as basketball and ballet. Wear and tear osteoarthritis of the hip joint is also relatively common.
Applying the Bodyspanner's local-regional-global model, dysfunction in strength and stability of this region can profoundly affect the way the entire body moves. This is commonly referred to as ‘core strength’ and is integral in preventing recurrence of low back pain and optimising general well-being.
