How to get rid of your back pain: YES this works!

The number of people suffering from any form of back pain in our western society is high and is constantly increasing. More than 80% of adults have suffered or are suffering from muscle aches located in the neck, shoulder, upper and lower back region.

But why is that?

For the last 50 years, western society has slowly abandoned physical activity. We are spending more and more time sitting in front of our computers, smartphones and televisions, instead of giving our body the movement and exercise it needs to function well.

Body mobility and muscle strength maintenance has been replaced by lying and sitting in bad positions for many hours and days on a row at work and at home.

The back muscles slowly stiffen and weaken.

Add to this, daily stress and bad eating habits. What happens? The risk of having any kind of muscle back pain increases.

The constant numbness and burning pain put lots of strain on the body and mind and can, in the long run, have a negative influence on leading a normal and happy life.

The key to a pain free back lies in strengthening and stretching the back muscles on a daily basis!

Sports practice helps in preventing back pain.

But certain sports activities, while they increase cardio training or muscle growth, they generally don’t enhance core muscle strength and flexibility.

An excellent way to improve your core is to practice Yoga or Pilates.

However… if these routines are not your thing, why not start with basic stretch and core muscle exercises by yourself?!

You only need to set aside 10 to 15 minutes in your daily schedule, during the day, a time when you can be free from family, work or other obligations.

It is important to start at your own level and listen to your body. You won’t benefit from forcing things or being impatient.

In the first weeks, the body will be stiff and the movements can be a bit uncomfortable.

But after applying these exercises day after day, the muscles will loosen up and gradually get stronger. You won’t notice it all at once, but your muscle pain will slowly decrease and eventually will disappear completely.

So now it’s time for you to take action.
