Some Causes Of Lower Back Pain
Now, remember, getting your back pain diagnosed by the doctor is what you need to do before you start looking for any type of treatment options. The following are some, but certainly not all of the, causes of back pain.
1. Musculo-skeletal Dysfunction – This is a mixed bag of conditions like muscle strains, bony mis-alignment, joint imbalances, muscle weakness, soft tissue shortening.
Pain coming from muscle problems or mis-alignment is usually localized in one area. But, depending on what muscles are involved, the pain could be felt in one of several places. Most of the time, you’ll have pain when your back muscles tighten up. Like when bending forward, walking, lifting or carrying something, and so on.

Piriformis Syndrome And Stretches For Sciatica
One of the best stretches for sciatica is one that targets the piriformis muscle. This is because one of the biggest (but not the only) causes of sciatica symptoms is a condition called “Piriformis Syndrome”.
This condition can give you sciatica type symptoms when your piriformis muscle gets too tight. This is because the sciatic nerve runs through the muscle and the tight muscle compresses the nerve and irritates it. This nerve irritation is what gives you all those symptoms like pain, numbness/tingling, etc.
