Individuals who suffer from Lower Back Pain tend to have a poor quality of life as back pain can restrict simple activities like walking, driving or even sitting. Agni Ayurvedic Healing Village has an effective treatment for lower back pain in Ayurveda.
The lumbosacral joint which is named by L5-S1, is a term used to describe a part of the spine. In fact, L5-S1 is the exact spot where the lumbar spine ends and the sacral spine begins. The Lumbar spine at the lower back has five bones which are labeled from L1 to L5. The sacrum is one triangular shaped bone consisting of five fused bones labeled from S1 to S5. These bones start to fuse soon after birth and continue to do so until they are completely fused by around the age of 30.
Junctions are the areas where the spinal curve changes directions. Injury risk may be higher at junctions because the body weight shifts direction as the curves shift directions.
The L5-S1 junction is located between the lumbar curve to the sacral curve and is vulnerable to misalignment, wear and tear, and injury. Aging and injury can increase the vulnerability of the L5-S1 junction even more.
