Tension in the back is all too common! A high percentage of my clients are coming to see me because of it.
Many people who also see me for pelvic issues such as urinary leakage, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain or healing abdominal separation postpartum say that they have a history of back pain that comes and goes, or experiences persistent chronic back pain.
