Low back pain is one of the most common health problems in the world and it can have many causes. It can be caused by an injury, a disease, or by everyday activities. Some of the most common causes of low back pain are:

  • Muscle strain or sprain

  • Arthritis

  • Slipped disc

  • Infection

  • Degenerative disc disease

  • Osteoporosis

  • Poor posture

Muscle strain or sprain:

The lower back is composed of five muscle groups that can become strained or injured if they are overworked or under-supported. These muscles include the erector, lumborum, longissimus thoracis, multifidus spinae and iliopsoas group.

If you feel like you have a pulled muscle in your lower back, it is important to know what may have caused it and what you can do about it.


Low back arthritis is a common type of arthritis that affects the spine. People with low back arthritis often experience pain in their lower back, buttocks, and legs.

The most common cause of low back arthritis is age-related wear and tear of the spine. Other causes include injury, previous surgery to the spine, infection, or an underlying disease such as diabetes or cancer.

Common symptoms are pain in the lower back and buttocks that worsens when standing up from sitting or lying down; pain when walking up stairs; stiffness in the morning; difficulty bending forward to tie shoes; and difficulty turning over in bed.

Slipped disc:

A slipped disc is a condition in which the nucleus pulposus (the jelly-like substance that normally occupies the center of the intervertebral discs) leaks out of the disc and puts pressure on a nerve root.

The most common cause of slipped disc is degeneration. Degeneration happens when there is damage to the disc and it starts to wear down over time. The nucleus pulposus can leak out as a result of degeneration, causing pressure on a nerve root.

The most common symptom is pain in the lower back, neck or leg. This pain can be severe and may radiate down one or both legs or arms depending on which nerve root is affected.


A low back infection is a localized bacterial infection in the skin and tissues around the buttocks.

The most common cause of a low back infection is an injury to the area, such as a cut or scratch.

It can also be caused by contact with an infected person or animal, or by contact with an object that has been contaminated by bacteria from another person’s body fluids.

Degenerative disc disease:

Degenerative disc disease is a condition that causes the discs in the spine to deteriorate. It’s typically caused by aging or trauma, and can lead to serious complications.

The spinal discs are cushions between the vertebrae that play a critical role in supporting the spine. The disks are made of a tough outer layer and a soft center made of jelly-like material, called nucleus pulposus. As people age or if they have an injury, this jelly-like center can wear away and start to collapse within the disc. This may cause pain and lead to other health problems such as sciatica or herniated discs.


Osteoporosis is a disease of the bones in which the density decreases and they become fragile, brittle and prone to fracture. The low back region is one of the most common areas for osteoporosis to occur. Low back pain is a known symptom of this condition.

Osteoporosis can be caused by many factors, including:

-Family history

-Lifestyle factors

-Medical conditions


Poor posture:

We are all guilty of slouching or sitting incorrectly in our chairs. This can cause a lot of pain in the back and neck.

There are many ways that people can avoid this pain, but here are some basic tips for starters:

– Sit up straight when sitting at your desk, with your shoulders back and your head up.

– When you stand up, make sure to pull your stomach in and push out your chest.

– When you walk, make sure to keep your head level with the ground and don’t lean forward or backward too much.

– If you have a problem with low back pain due to poor posture, try not to slouch while sitting or standing.


No matter what the cause of low back pain, the Malin Method can help. This program works by naturally stopping low back pain, whether it’s poor posture, strains or sprains, slipped discs, etc. By taking the pressure off the spine and fixing postural distortions, the delicate nerves in the low back can relax and reset your central nervous system to stop low back pain once and for all.

And since the results are completely all natural and dynamic, they are long-term, which means low back pain will not return, allowing you to get back to your favorite hobbies and sports. We hope you will give it a try, risk free, for 30 days. You do not need any equipment and people of all ages can easily do it at home, no matter how immobile they are at the moment.
