After an injury, a person may experience lower back pain. The most common cause of low back pain is muscle and ligament damage as well as compression on the nerves in that area. Mechanical issues can also be caused by improper movements from injuries to intervertebral discs or spinal joints; all these problems are very painful but they usually heal quickly with time and patience

Muscle Strain and Ligament Sprain
You may not know it, but your muscles and ligaments are at risk every time you move.
A gradual stretch or sudden pull on either can lead to a muscle sprain or strain – the difference between them is in what they affect: muscles (strains) tear themselves while spraining effects ligament fibers that connect bones together. Neither type of injury has any preferred victim; an individual’s symptoms will be identical regardless of which was injured because both types involve inflammation and pain caused by overstretching the tissue from repetitive movements like running, squatting down too low for pick up something off the floor.
Common causes of sprain and strain include:
Lifting a heavy object, or twisting the spine while lifting
Sudden movements that place too much stress on the low back, such as a fall
Poor posture over time
Sports injuries, especially in sports that involve twisting or large forces of impact
While sprains and strains do not sound serious and do not typically cause long-lasting pain, the acute pain can be quite severe.
Causes of Chronic Lower Back Pain
Chronic pain is an unfortunate reality for many and can make a person feel trapped in their own body. It’s often due to disc problems, joint problems or irritated nerve roots that cause chronic low back pain when they go without relief.
Common Causes Include:
A herniated disc can be a painful experience for the patient. The jelly-like centre of a lumbar disc, which is richly supplied by nerve fibres and has proteins that cause inflammation when they reach nearby nerves, will break through its tough outer layer to irritate an adjacent nerve root causing pain in this area as well.
The discs that make up your backbone are made of water and jelly. They help move the spine, but as you age they lose their fluids over time causing them to become brittle which leads to pain or weakness in the back muscles leading to herniations. Lastly, a collapsed disc can contribute to stenosis
Facet joint dysfunction. Facet joints are tiny little bones that often go unnoticed because they’re located near the spine. They help to stabilize and support your back, but when these joints become painful or inflamed it can be a huge problem for those who suffer from this condition!
Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is when the sacral ileum joins together, which connects to both sides of your pelvis. This strong and low-motion joint mainly absorbs tension between your upper body and lower body that can be painful if it becomes inflamed or you have too much motion in this area.
Spinal stenosis is a condition that causes pain because of the narrowing in your spinal canal, where all of your nerve roots are located. The next can be central or formal and it may only affect one level on your lower back but if not treated will progress to multiple levels.
Spondylolisthesis is a condition that occurs when one vertebra slips over the next. There are five types of spondylolisthesis but the most common are secondary to defects or fractures in bone, mechanical instability at facet joints caused by ageing bones, and nerve compression from back problems or leg pain.
Osteoarthritis is a condition that occurs when the vertebrae rub against each other and cause pain, inflammation, instability, and stenosis. Although it can occur in one or many areas of your spine at any time during life depending on how much you move around through out your day to day activities; osteoarthritis usually happens as we age because our joints start slowing down which causes them to become less flexible than they used to be.
Osteoporosis is another common bone disease that affects more women than men who typically experience this disorder after their prime years have passed by (around 50+). Modern medicine has created drugs such as Denalac-P for these kinds of systemic problems but there are also several holistic
Deformity curvature of the spine can include scoliosis or kyphosis. The deformity may be associated with lower back pain if it leads to the breakdown of discs, facet joints, sacroiliac joint or stenosis.
Trauma from an accident or a fall could lead to vertebrae breaking and compressing nerves near them that transmit signals about movement in your body through our spinal cord into different parts such as arms/legs giving you feelings like tingling sensations when touched by something else’s hands
Compression fractures in cylindrical vertebrae can cause sudden pain, especially if the bone has weakened due to osteoporosis or age. These types of fracture are most common and more likely for older people who may have weak bones from either disease. However, it is important that one does not automatically assume a fracture on an imaging study will always lead to pain because there might be other causes as well like arthritis or degenerative disc disease without any symptoms at all reported by the person being studied.
How Yoga Therapy Helps Back Pain
Yoga therapy is a set of holistic health benefits that stretches and strengthens muscles, such as the paraspinal muscles for back support. Yoga also provides support by stretching your vertebrae with bending poses in order to keep them from compressing. The multifidus muscle stabilizes it while you are doing yoga practice making sure nothing will happen if there was an injury or accident may cause harm to the spine; this includes transverse abdominis which supports abdominal parts like organs but can be found on both sides of your stomach area so it helps stabilize everything around the lower part of our body during movement
Practising yoga helps develop the body and mind, yet is not a substitute for medicine. It is essential to learn and practice yoga under the supervision of a trained Yoga Therapist. In case of any medical condition, practice yoga only after consulting your doctor and a Mind & Soul Yoga Therapist.
Mind & Soul therapists work on IAYT (Integrated Approach of Yoga Technique) models which help to get the best results.

Yoga therapy helps people concentrate their energy on breathing and maintaining posture. The methodical breathing increases oxygen flow to the brain and sets a rhythm within the body and mind. This action coupled with the poses and sometimes meditation is said to dissipate stress and anxiety, therefore, relieving back pain caused by psychological and emotional factors.

Mental Benefits of Yoga Therapy
Engaging in Hatha yoga affords the practitioner with a mental state of mind that is ready for meditation, which in turn reduces stress and enhances mood. These mental benefits play an important role in the overall healing benefits of yoga. There are several theories as to why a mental state of mind may affect those suffering from back pain.
