Shopping is one of the activities that we most frequently hear about regarding aggravating our clients’ lower backs. And what do we do during the holiday season? We shop.
The stopping and starting and stopping again. The standing around in long lines with no reprieve for our back muscles.
Couple that with the other stresses associated with the holidays and the factors that can ramp up lower back pain/tightness can get the best of us. So if you are looking for a quick and effective way to reduce tension in your lower back, you’ll want to watch this video.
Derahn shows you how to relax your lower back muscles WITHOUT stretching. It is counter intuitive for most people but it gets the job done because it goes with the tightness instead of away from it.
That’s the good news. It will relax the back muscles and for many people reduce or eliminate upper and lower back pain.
The bad news is that this is not a long term solution. It does not address the many, many bio-psycho-social factors associated with pain.
However, any time you can mitigate the discomfort, keep it from escalating and take control-you are doing something very positive for your long term success.
