Non-Specific Low Back Pain
Low Back Pain is well known to at least 80% of people.
The cause can be ascertained in many cases with the help of modern diagnostic techniques such as MRI.
In other cases, these modern diagnostic techniques only serve to exclude all known and understood causes leaving "Non-Specific Low Back Pain"
(or "Discogenic Back Pain" as there is some evidence that such pain originates in the disc.)
In this Website, I suggest that the origin for Non-Specific Low Back Pain lies in an unexpected,
and as yet unrecognised, limitation in the flexion of the lowest two disks, L4/5 and L5/S
These two discs, and only these two, have evolved
in the human spine to have their normal range of
flexion and extension only on the extension side
of what might be called the central position (parallel
sided). In other words, the wedge shape of the disc,
as seen in lateral x-ray, should always be maintained.
The thickness of the disc anteriorly should always
be greater than the posterior thickness. (This, of course,
applies to the natural and pain free spine.)
