BACK PAIN: Don’t Move,Keep the Back Straight, Don’t Bend???

NO NO NO NO!!!!

Although these actions & thoughts might seem like the natural things to do to help ease your back pain, this is not actually the case!!!!!

“MOVEMENT IS GOOD”

Avoiding activities and moving carefully does not help in the long-term. It is common, especially during the first few days of back pain, that your movement can be significantly altered. This is similar to limping after spraining your ankle, and generally resolves as the pain settles. While initially hard, getting back doing valued activities which are painful, or feared, is very important.

The video shows some gentle lower back mobility/stretching exercises that are a great way of promoting movement that will help you out of your back pain episode. This routine should also been incorporated into your daily exercise programme.

If you or a friend or a family member have been suffering with backpain and can’t get it settle please give the clinic a call on 086-1958223 for practical and effective treatment.
