Does your low back hurt when you sit?
This is a fairly common scenario not only because many people sit all day, but because back pain can be felt in the same place by many people, but you all could have different sources to your problem. Many times the back is the victim.
Consider a patient scenario: Left sided low back pain, worse with sitting and driving.
You are fine for years and then one day out of the blue, your back hurts after a long meeting. Was it the chair? Was it because you started doing the stationary bike more? Or was it because you had a long drive the weekend before?
Such was the case for one of my patients. In order to get to a sitting position, you have to squat first. So I assessed her squat. Every time she squatted, her whole body rotated to the right. The body takes the path of least resistance. And her path was right.
