Ever had it – the dreaded back pain? Low-back pain, mid-back pain, upper back or/and neck pain? Ouch… it’s the worst.
I have a friend of mine who had such horrible back pain that she could not do hardly anything anymore. And she was only 36 years old. Is that too young to be practically immobile?
She took lot of pain-killers but they aren’t designed to stop the pain from coming back, they’re only designed to reduce the pain from time to time.
She surfers lot and went to see doctor many times, and then she is taking anti-inflammatories, which do work towards reduce her pain that caused by soft-tissue inflammation, but they DON’T get rid of the tightness and soreness caused by her muscle-imbalances and dysfunctions that created the inflammation in the first place, well … sometimes back > pain like this is only treatable with surgery.
Beside that, she also tried the usual treatments and techniques, like:
Chiropractors – but it did not work for her.
Rehab – working with a physical therapist. Nothing happened!!
About a year ago I introduced her to The Healthy Back Institute and then things start to turn around.
I turn my friend to them is because another golf buddy of mine, who also got serious back pain in Florida got treated by this institute. Now all his back pain is gone and he can play golf again. He told me they produce some really awesome back pain solution products. That’s why the company grew like crazy because the stuff they were producing “worked”.
Two weeks ago, my friend phoned me and told me that she is so happy with the solutions that HealthyBack offers because it worked for her case (after took all those medications). She’s 95% now and able to do just about anything she wants. I am really happy for her and glad to see her out of the pain life.
She also told me that the solution is more than just treating her back pain; it is the “last” solution she needs.
We need back pain “prevention” – especially if you are over the age of 35. Myself, I do specific exercises to keep my back strong.
One specific thing I do is a variation on a yoga stretch. It’s hard to explain in writing, but I’ll try:
First, you spread your legs a bit wider than your shoulders. Then you turn your feet to a 90-degree angle with both toes pointed either toward your left side or your right side.
If you never do it before, this may feel odd at first, so be sure to brace yourself against a fixed object until you get the balancing act down.
So your “body” is facing forward but your “feet” are turned, pointing either left or right. Try to get as close to a perfect 90 degree angle as you can. The sides of your feet should be straight when you look down.
Then put your arms straight out to your sides once you get your balance.
Now, slowly bend to the site your toes are pointing while slowly turning your body toward that side, bending down as if you were going to touch that toe. The trick is that your “other” food remains in the same place. Stretch comfortably, then switch your feet and point them the other direction. Your body is still facing forward. Then repeat the stretch to the new direction.
Well, it sounds complicated. At the beginning is might be hard, but once you do it a few times it becomes second nature.
This is a really good exercise for back pain “prevention”. Of course, there are many, many more other exercises you can do – both for prevention and for current back and upper back/neck pain.
What I like you to do is go see what HealthyBack has to offer. And unlike writing, they can “show” you what to do for pain – both prevention and current pain.
In fact, you can consider this is a “Must-Have” if you want to keep your back in line for years to come.
