Below are some simple tips you can use to help with your lower back pain. However to remove it permanently, I urge you to use lower back stretches, lower back exercises and simple techniques at home to remove your back pain - completely and permanently.
The 6 essential tips for low back pain
Tip One: Lie down more - most adults spend the entire waking day either sitting or standing. Gravity places huge stress on your lower spine which leads to one of the most common causes of lower back pain ... tiredness of the muscles.
Tip Two: Warm Up - not just for exercise, but for life in general. Gardening, household chores, lifting at home or work are more common causes of lower back pain than injuries. So warm up before you garden, vacuum the house, or any vigorous activity.
Tip Three: Lower Back Stretches - stretch your lower back before you go to bed, when you wake in the morning and at the end of your working day. Simple stretches to ease the muscle tension that has built up from gravity, lifting and bending and other lower back pain causes.
Tip Four: Lower Back Exercises - strengthen the lower back with effective exercises. This does not mean going to the gym, it means improving the blood and nerve supply to the muscles and then improving their strength. If you fail to improve nerve and blood supply, then lower back exercises will fail to increase strength long term.
Tip Five: If Pain Persists - seek help. There are numerous ways you can eliminate lower back pain yourself. However, there is no substitute from consulting a professional lower back pain expert. It doesn't matter who you see, as long as they come recommended. These professionals can be simply avoided by following tip six...
Tip Six: Do it now - lower back pain in the early stages is the easiest time to correct it. Most people wait until they can hardly move, or pain is radiating down the leg, or it has been a few months of pain... before they decide to try and correct their lower back pain.
The first step in relieving pain is not actually targeting your muscles or joints. The first step is identifying the distortion patterns that have created your pain.
When you can identify these patterns you can target the causes quickly and ease pain. You can use the same techniques to make sure pain does not return by reassessing your spine regularly.
The longer you wait the harder it is to correct.
The One Step Most People Fail To Use
With all back pain conditions, there is one step most people forget to use, yet it is the most important step.
In low back pain, before you ever attempt to remove it, you need to detect the imbalances in your spine.
It is the spinal imbalances that cause all back pain. These imbalances have developed over weeks, months, years and longer for some. They are the accumulation of many small injuries over time that causes your spine to twist and distort.
Once these imbalances are present, your muscles and joint swill fail to function correctly and over time pain develops.
The first step in low back pain relief is always detecting these imbalances. Once you know which imbalances you have, then and only then can you use the correct stretches and exercises to relieve pain.
