Lower back pain is one of the most prevalent health complaints from adults, affecting 60 to 80 percent of the global population. For many people, back pain is minimal and manageable. However, for those suffering from chronic back pain, surgery may be their best option.

Unfortunately, surgery may not yield desired results and may even result in complications such as increased pain and discomfort. It's unfortunate to experience a failed back surgery, but there is hope for living a pain-free life.


If you feel tension in your body or experience discomfort in your back while sitting, walking or standing, you may benefit from stretching. Regularly stretching improves flexibility, range of motion, energy levels and posture. It also releases tension to help relieve and prevent pain.
