More than 80% of us experience low back pain at some point in our lives. In most cases, the pain goes away on it’s own or with a little “help” from the internet, yet recurrence rates of low back pain range between 24% and 80% within the first year.
A literature review by Steffens and colleagues summarizes the benefits of exercise and education for low back pain. The types of interventions included in the studies were patient education, core stabilization exercises emphasizing exercises for the back and abdominal muscles, stretching and spinal range of motion exercises as well as general aerobic conditioning exercises.
The reduction in recurrence rates of low back pain was impressive at 25% to 40% in the short-term.
The effects in the long term were more uncertain. Several studies showed no decline in recurrence rates after one year.
So what does this mean?
More than likely, the participants felt better and they stopped doing their exercises. Sound familiar?
In order to prevent recurrence of pain or injury in the future, it is crucial to continue with an exercise program that includes core stabilization training, flexibility and spinal range of motion exercises and general aerobic conditioning.

Do you ever experience a snapping sensation when you bend or rotate your hip?
The most common reason for the snapping is stiffness in the iliotibial band or in the iliopsoas muscle.
As you bend or rotate your hip, the stiffness of the iliotibial band will cause a snapping sensation on the outside of your hip. This is caused by the iliotibial tendon snapping against the greater trochanter of your femur. By the same token, stiffness in the iliopsoas muscle will cause a snapping sensation on the inside of your hip. This is caused by the iliopsoas tendon snapping against the lesser trochanter of the femur.
