Great Read! On Mechanisms for Low Back Pain and Prevention

Great summary of findings by some experts in the field – a little “technical” but not too bad. A must read for everyone. “Good motor control and appropriate activities maintain movements in the neutral or elastic range. Poor motor control or inappropriate activities allow movement to reach the elastic range.” – Panjabi

This means if you can master and strengthen good movement patterns, you can give yourself a buffer towards injury (not totally prevent, but buffer), and if you move poorly, well then, you raise your injury risk. How’s your spinal position when you lift, bend, heck – when you clean your house?
