The Woodlands / PRC - Lower Back Pain
Lower Back Pain Relief in Houston The WoodlandsAlmost every American suffers from lower back pain at some point in their lives. The bad news is that unless you have a major injury or disc issue, your doctor may not be able to do much for you other than prescribe some pain medication and advise you to rest. The good news is that by following some simple steps, your lower back pain can be relieved in a matter of days. Better yet, you can help prevent future back pain issues as well.
Most minor lower back pain involves strained muscles and ligaments in the lumbar region. Many people attribute this to hereditary factors, but simple activities can cause lower back pain in almost anyone. As soon as you notice back pain, try these stretches for lower back pain relief.
RelaxLay down, flat on the floor, facing upward. Pull your knees up to your chest and grasp them with your hands. Then, gently rock back and forth on your lower back to massage the area and gently stretch it out.
Fold Your Knees To The Opposite SideLay flat on the floor, facing upward. Pull your knees up to your chest and extend the right leg straight out, resting the heel on the floor. Then use the right hand to pull the left knee (still contracted) over the right leg and toward the floor on your right. Hold for 30 seconds, pressing the knee closer to the floor as you push your left shoulder back to the floor.
CobraLie flat on the floor, facing downward, while pointing your toes backward. Position your hands at the armpits and press down so that your shoulders rise. Now fully extend your arms while pressing your hips toward the floor. Hold for 30 seconds.
Table positionFace down on all fours, forming a tabletop with your back. Now, curve the spine so the tabletop dips to a U-shape and hold for 10 seconds. Now, curve the back in the opposite direction so the spine humps upward, and hold the position for another 10 seconds. Repeat this process four times.
