In today’s blog post, we focus on a very unique type of low back pain. For many of our clients, low back pain might show up as direct spinal pain, pain at the top of the pelvis, or SI Joint pain. Just as often, we see pain right at the base of the spine, right over a large bone called the sacrum (commonly know as the “tailbone”)
