3 Ways To Relieve Back Problems…
If you have back pain… or want to avoid getting back pain… read on to discover the 3 ways to relieve back problems.
#1: Avoid positions that hurt your back.
You MUST avoid the position shown in the image above: BENDING over, while TWISTING your back, while REACHING for an object, while LIFTING or PULLING that object. If you have a job or a task that require you to do this position, ask for help… or modify the activity so that you don’t have to do assume this position that’s REALLY bad for your back.
You should also avoid the back positions that make your back pain worse. When it comes to back pain… NO pain, NO gain is NOT a good rule. Some people feel like the pain is creating a good stretch in their low back. Not so… if you’re putting your back in a position that makes your back pain worse, you’re probably doing more HARM than GOOD.
#2: Do back range of motion exercises that relieve back pain.
There are easy exercises that most people with back pain can safely do. If you feel SHARP PAIN in your low back… or anywhere… while doing any of these exercises, STOP immediately. Many back problems can be relieved by back exercises. But if you’re getting SHARP PAIN with any of the exercises below, your back pain may be beyond this point. You may have a serious condition that needs expert help.
WARNING: As a general rule, if your back pain is caused by a herniated disc or a bulged disc, DON’T do the exercises that require you to bend your torso forward. Also, DON’T do the exercises that require you to bend your leg(s) up. If your back pain is caused by referred pain from an irritated low back spinal facet joint, DON’T do the exercises that require you to bend your torso backward.
You can do these exercises while
you’re sitting or standing.
While keeping your back straight, move your back forward. Then backward. Then left. Then right. Then move your upper body to look over your RIGHT shoulder. Then move your upper body to look over your LEFT shoulder.
#3: If you still have back pain after doing #1 and #2 above, try this back stretching machine.
