then perhaps your lower back pain is not bad enough to push you to
If you are tired of being in pain try
these 5 tips for lower back pain relief to help you achieve a better lower back.
- Develop core fitness. Even if you
have degenerated discs or facet arthritis and your back problem
doesn't seem to be muscular in its origin, having a fit core can help
you prevent further damage to your discs and joints. If you are like
most lower back pain sufferers you probably have become
deconditioned. Deconditioned is the scientific name for being out of
shape. Your daily activities may be cumbersome due to weakness, lack
of endurance and/or poor flexibility. Commit to a regular core
fitness program at the very minimum and watch and feel low back pain
for over time.
- Identify, treat and eliminate
trigger points. This is probably the most important thing you can do
if you are a chronic low back pain sufferer. Trigger points by far
are the biggest cause of chronic lower back pain. Limiting trigger
points can often by itself eliminate your chronic pain.
- Use a back cushion in your car to
support your lumbar spine in its neutral position. Most car seats are
grossly inadequate for proper lower back support. You may also want
one for your favorite chair when you are watching TV. And don't
forget if you fly a lot to place a small pillow behind your lower
back. Airplane seats are notorious for aggravating or contributing to
lower back pain.
- Have your posture analyzed for
pelvic tilt that may be due to a short leg. A simple $10 heel lift
may be all that you need to level a pelvic tilt, align your spine and reduce
chronic muscle and joint stress.
- Get fitted for and use custom made shoe arch suports in all of your shoes. If you have pes planus (flat feet) or
over-pronation these will stress your lower back, hips and knees and
adversely affect your posture. Poor posture (structure) equates to
poor function and the end result is your body breaking down and pain.
Bonus Tip: Always sleep on a bed that is scientically designed to afford you the best possible sleeping posture support. You spend 1/3 of your life in bed so don't you think your back and body deserve the best attention during that time of the day.
