KT Tape: Low Back
Pain in the low back, or lumbago, can be a very complicated problem. As the body ages, the spine undergoes compensatory changes to adjust with the rest of the body. Some of those changes are for the good, but some of those changes can cause pain and problems in human function.
CAUSES OF LOWER BACK PAIN OR LUMBAGO
Low back pain is often aggravated by prolonged sitting or standing as well as activities where we use the body as a lever – like vacuuming. The pain is often the result of mechanical conditions such as disk disease, fractures, or other breakdowns of the spinal structure. Rarely do issues involving inflammation or nerve damage cause low back pain, but research suggests that misalignments of the spine or hips could also contribute to bilateral low back pain.
LOWER BACK PAIN SYMPTOMS
Pain is generally felt near the top of the pelvis and in the center of the low back on the lower spine and typically stems from a combination of overuse, muscle strain, and injury or damage to the muscles, ligaments, and discs that support the spine.
HOW KT TAPE CAN HELP
Use KT Tape to relieve pressure and pain, provide proprioceptive support, and increase circulation to promote the healing process*. Relief is generally felt immediately and allows the body to return to a healthy posture and normal function*.
