Taking the Strain Off Your Back
self help article
by Dr. Jeremy Sims

Health and wellbeing self help article about self help back pain remedies, health, fitness, back pain, spine, healthy body, natural remedies, fitness, back exercises:

One of the most common indications of stress is lower back pain.

This is particularly so if we are hunched over an office desk for great periods of time.

Learn to notice when your back is feeling the strain and give it a little TLC.

1. Find somewhere quiet and lie down with your arms at your sides, knees bent and soles of your feet in contact with the floor.

2. Tense your stomach muscles, drawing your stomach in and flattening your back against the floor. Slow and regulate your breathing.

3. Now relax your stomach.

4. Carry out two further repetitions of the above.

5. Lying flat on your back, extend your right leg so that it is flat to the floor and keep the left leg bent at the knee.

Keep the palms of your hands flat to the floor and bring your left knee (still bent) across your right leg, attempting to touch the floor with it.

6. Now relax.

7. Repeat step 5 two more times and then three further repetitions with the other knee.

Never force the above twisting motion – gradually does it.

Remember, if lower back pain is persistent seek medical advice as soon as possible.
