Could your back pain be the result of a bulging or herniated disc?

What is Flatback Syndrome?

The spine has several natural curves that help us balance the weight of our bodies, maintain a normal gait, and stand upright. When a person loses the natural curve in their lower back and the spine becomes straight (or flat), it can lead to a number of symptoms – including pain, inability to stand upright – that are collectively referred to as flatback syndrome.
