7 Steps to Eliminate Lower Back Pain – permanently!

Do you suffer from Lower Back Pain? Would you like to move around free and easily, being able to do sport or just play with your children… without the fear of your lower back pain getting worse?

Well, you are in good company. Over 80.

Step 3: Joint Mobility

Your joints need to move freely and easily. If the joint gets “sticky” then the muscles around it will tire out or tighten up. If a joint moves well the muscles are able to function correctly and stay in their ideal state of tension.

But… surely moving joints is in the domain of Chiropractors, Osteopaths and Physio’s. Actually there are many techniques that you can use at home to get your joints moving freely and easily. Add in the muscle techniques and the major causes of lower back pain are eliminated, simply and easily.

Step 4: Inflammation

Inflammation can be removed through medication, supplements, Homeopathics and other natural products. You can also use Acupressure or Acupuncture (although Acupuncture is hard to use at home – who wants to stick needles in themselves anyway) which are both highly effective at removing inflammation.

If your joints are tender to touch, if your muscles are sensitive also, then inflammation is likely there. Removing it helps the area heal faster. Left there too long and the area will stiffen and become slower to heal, and even scar tissue can form as a protection.

Step 5: Posture

Is you posture correct, do you stand up straight? Well don’t be alarmed, neither of these is important. Posture is a function of lower back pain, energy levels and general health.

If you are suffering lower back pain, then your posture changes to accommodate it. If you are tired then you will slouch and have a less ideal posture. Posture is important to help the long term removal of lower back pain and the next step is vital in all postural issues.

Step 6: Rest

Rest means rest. Yes you should relax and rest, stop using your spine each day for at least an hour. Take time here and there to lie down and stop fighting gravity. Gravity is the biggest cause of stress on your spine and muscles.

Lying down is the only way you can rest against gravity. If you lie down a few times a day then your muscles will not tire as easily, joints will have less pressure on them, your disc in your spine will not be squeezed as often and your energy levels in general will be better.

All you need to do is every few hours, take a 5-10 minute break and lie on the floor. When you get home and watch TV, lie on the floor or sofa to rest while you watch the TV. All these help to ease tension off your spine and will also benefit your posture – as if you are less tired, if your muscles have more energy – your posture will improve.

Step 7: Seek Help

If in doubt seek help, if lower back pain persists see your doctor. Lower back pain will usually ease itself within a few weeks. If you use the steps above then you can shorten this time considerably. However if lower back pain persists… seek help.
