“WHY IS EVERYONE SUDDENLY TALKING ABOUT CORE STRENGTH?” As you’ve noticed, your spine isn’t just a floating column of bone connecting your pelvis and your head.

There are several types of lower back pain. Some patients are afflicted with sciatica, while others experience age-related degeneration. Some pains are acute, such as a sprain that will improve, and other pains are chronic and need medical intervention. A lumbar herniated disc is one of the latter.
