Low back pain is a very common condition. Most studies indicate that exercise and education are some the best and safest treatments for back pain. Many people with back pain benefit from low back stretching, some patients get relief from strengthening their core and hip muscles, and others require a combination of stretching and strengthening to help treat their back pain.

The McKenzie Method is an evidence-based system of assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention strategies. It could be your road map towards relieving your back pain.
