In low back pain, research has shown that the amount of disc and nerve damage rarely relates to the amount of pain experienced. Many changes in tissues are just a normal part of being alive and don’t have to hurt. What’s more,  these changes  don’t  necessarily have to stop anyone leading a very functional and active life. Therefore, if  there is  no pain it  means that these changes in tissues are not perceived by your brain to be a threat.
