Experiencing lumbar backache (back pain) is a common ailment for most people, almost everyone has it at some point. The lumbar region, or more commonly called the lower back, starts below the rib cage. The pain can be intense and is one of the top causes of why people become immobile.
Low and lower back pain can vary from dull pain that develops gradually to sudden, sharp or persistent pain felt below the waist. The pain may travel downward into the buttocks and sometimes into one or both lower extremities. The most common cause for back ache is muscle strain related to heavy physical labor, lifting or forceful movement, bending or twisting into awkward positions, or standing in one position too long.

ANF Testimonial: Lumbar Backache
"This was one of our test patients who had surgery at L4/L5 in February 2017. He had a tough time bending forward initially due to lower back pain.
Our students came up with a treatment plan and disced him up! The pics show the difference! After the treatment, he had zero pain bending forward afterwards! Great job guys!"
