Lower back pain is a very common, and in some cases, a very painful condition to live with. It is a very intricate area of the body made up of many overlapping muscles, tendons, spinal discs, small joints, and nerves. It can be caused by many different factors, however there are also several ways to treat and prevent lower back pain.
It is very important to properly diagnose the exact lower chronic back pain causes and location before you begin any sort of therapy or rehabilitation. In some cases the pain may be caused by overcompensation for a different area of your body that may be injured. In those situations it is necessary to locate the original injury and focus on healing that area in order to eliminate the lower back pain.
Take a second and think about your posture at this moment. How is it? Chances are it probably isn’t correct. Practicing proper posture when sitting or standing can significantly reduce lower chronic back pain when performing strenuous activities and common everyday movements. These effective preventative actions are often neglected and can actually become strong contributing factors to increased lower back pain.
Exercise is a great way to experience lower back pain relief. Try these exercises to help strengthen your lower back and the muscles that support it. These exercises can help decrease pain and can also help speed recovery times, prevent reinjury, and lower the risk of permanent disability. Exercise can help with mild to severe lower back pain, but take note of certain exercises to avoid.
