Low back and upper back pain can have many causes but the majority stem from adhesions in the muscles.
Adhesions act like glue in your muscles, not allowing them to contract or stretch properly. When this occurs it causes altered motion of your spine and increases wear and tear on your discs and joints. This can lead to disc bulge, disc herniation, numbness, tingling and degeneration. It is important to have this fixed as soon as possible to avoid further damage.
Muscle adhesion is the most common source of pain and stiffness and the most underdiagnosed.
