Preventing lower back injuries
The majority of LBP can be classified as mechanical;
 including problems affecting the many joints, discs,
 ligaments and muscles of the spine. Most risk factors
 related to muscle performance can be prevented by 
taking a proactive approach. By ensuring an exercise
 programme has an adequate warm-up, muscular balance,
 core strength, a flexibility component, and is regularly 
performed, the risk of developing a lower back injury
 decreases substantially. In addition to this, overall body 
awareness is equally important as often times injuries
 occur when we least expect it.
