Do you have lower back pain that came out of nowhere? Can you not remember how it got there? You’ve been through X-Rays and MRIs and nothing shows up. You start to think you’re going crazy, right? Don’t worry, you’re not crazy. It could be a pelvic asymmetry. Pelvic asymmetries occur frequently and often mimic lower back pain. Often times, there are no real tender points. Usually, just aching and pain with certain activities. Your SI joints become maligned and cause aching in the muscles attached to the pelvis and even into the legs. Women are more likely to have SI problems than men due to the ability of the pelvis to move for childbirth. If you’re having persistent low back pain or pain into your hips, give First Choice a call to get it checked out.
