Tip of the Month - Move It!
Most back pain will actually feel better and heal quicker if you keep moving. The most common area that tightens with all back pain is your pelvis. Being an area that has no disc to protect the joints, movement helps to keep the area moving better.
So unless your back pain becomes worse with movement – start moving. Go for a walk, don’t sit too long and generally keep moving. It is as simple as that.
So... get moving
Things You Need to Know
How can you eliminate your back pain, neck pain and sciatica? What techniques are good and which aren't? This section is here to teach you the many ways you can help your self to a pain free life.
Back pain affects over 80% of adults at some stage, a frightening statistic you must agree. However, knowing this does not make you back pain ease or settle.
Even though the majority of you reading this will have back pain now or at some stage soon, most of you do not know simple ways to remove it. This is my job - to teach you only the simplest and best ways to stop back pain.
You may have been told that back pain comes from 4 main sources:
1. Muscle Tension - when muscles tighten they cause pain. This is probably the biggest cause of back pain.
2. Muscle Weakness - if some muscles do not have the strength to support your back, other muscles will tighten and cause back pain.
3. Inflammation - if joints tighten then they may swell, or if you have had falls or knocks then inflammation occurs.
4. Joint Disruption - if your spinal or pelvic joints do not move freely, then back pain will occur quickly.
So although these are the mechanisms that create back pain, you need to know a little more...
Back pain itself comes from the tight muscles. The tight muscles create over 90% of your back pain, the remainder comes from inflammation. You may therefore think that to stop back pain you need to ease the muscle tension.
You are only partially correct.
Stretching a tight muscle will not necessarily reduce the tension enough to stop back pain. Sometimes it will even make the pain worse.
The reason the muscles tighten is that they are protecting the joints in the area. The protection occurs as the joints fail to move correctly. This is why muscle tension occurs.
So to reduce the muscle tension, and of course your back pain, you must release the muscle tightness and correct the joint.
Fail to correct the joint and the muscle tension will return - now or sometime very soon. The problem is it comes back worse most times. This is the most common reason back pain becomes chronic - failing to address all the causes of back pain.
Does this mean you need to see a practitioner - no! You can actually ease pressure from your joints your self... effectively, safely and painlessly. Add in some simple ways to reduce muscle tension quickly - of all the offending muscles - and back pain will ease quickly.
Then all you need to do is make sure it doesn't come back with more simple and easy techniques that remove all the causes and prevent back pain from returning.
So how can you reduce the joint pressure, simple!
If you press gently but firmly on the joint that is sore. You will notice if you press in some directions the pain feels a little worse - like a bruise. If you pres in this direction while you breathe in and out, your body will actually correct the joint and ease the tension around it.
This is only a temporary fix for your back pain, you still need to rebalance your pelvis - the most common cause of back pain, strengthen weak muscles, reduce muscle tension and correct all the joints not working correctly.
As for the muscle tension, using Acupressure you can rapidly target tight muscles and reduce their tension. Stretching although good can only target a few muscles and not necessarily the small muscles around the joint that cause most of your back pain.
A simple Acupressure point to reduce muscle tension is on the back of your knee. Just come in from the outside of your knee where your hamstring tendon is, the depression there is an Acupressure point for muscular tension. Simply hold this point on both knees at once and rest your hands there for at least 5 minutes. The longer you hold the point the more the tension will reduce.
You do not need to rub or press hard - just like jumper cabling a battery - you are just making a connection from one point to the next.
And it is as simple as that...
You can stop your back pain simply if you apply simple techniques as soon as possible. This saves you time and money on seeking help and best of all it limits the time you suffer from back pain.

Q: Is Upper Back Pain Common?
A: Although less common than lower back pain, upper back pain issues are increasing. The reason is simple enough – you spend more time sitting at desks at work, stresses are higher and the saying- "stress rides on your shoulders" is true.
Your upper back also has the rib cage to deal with. As these are smaller joints they do not need much tension on them before they tighten. This unsettles the upper back joints and pain occurs. The muscles in the area are hard to stretch so you tend to do less to ease tension when it is minor. Whereas people stretch their lower backs all the time and ease some stress and tension.
Upper back pain is however very easy to fix and prevent. In the "X-Pain Method" there is only a small section on upper back pain. Why?
Because a few simple techniques is all that is needed to remove it. It is less complex and settles quickly.
So don’t worry about your upper back pain, it will disappear and will remain pain free using some simple exercises.
So thanks again for all your emails. Keep them coming and if you want changes ask for them. I try to keep the material as informative for you as possible.
