You may dedicate an hour every day after work or cajole yourself into hitting the gym each week. But no matter how you approach your regular workouts, no one likes getting an injury. 

    And no matter how professional or careful you are, everyone gets injured eventually. It's more of a statistic than any personal failure. Train running for a year and your feet will hit the pavement millions of times.

    Back pain is something we all tangle with eventually, but not all back pain was created equal. The reason back pain is such a common experience is because your lower back is the nexus of so many important systems in the body.

    Sometimes, a joint gets pushed too far. Your bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments can only take so much pressure, activity, or extension before something goes wrong.
