I only bent over to get the mail!

Now my low back hurts to move

The number of times I've heard this story is staggering. It isn't always the weight that someone has lifted; but rather, how they moved.

Bending over to pick up a dropped pen or to collect the mail can be all it takes for some people's sacrum to become problematic. Naturally trauma from slips, falls and motor vehicle accidents are also sources of sacral dysfunctions.
