{August 18, 2008}   Exercise For Back Pain

Exercises to decrease the strain on your back

Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on your bed or floor. Raise your knees toward your chest. Place both hands under your knees and gently pull your knees as close to your chest as possible. Do not raise your head. Do not straighten your legs as you lower them. Start with five repetitions, several times a day.

Stand with your feet slightly apart. Keep your knees straight. Bend backwards at the waist as far as possible and hold the position for one or two seconds.

Back Stretching Exercise
1.Lie on the floor on your front.
2.Bend your arms and place the palms downwards beneath your shoulders. Your forehead should be towards the ground.

3.Push your hands into the ground and lift your upper body as far as you can comfortably go. Your back should be arched and your arms should be as straight as you can.

4.Hold and return to the starting position.

Interesting post.

Well, it seems that most chiropractic patients started wearing sacroiliac belts (aka SI belt) around their pelvis as it is recommended by most chiropractors across America. By providing the correct balance of resistance and resilience, the sacroiliac belt re-establishes the joint’s normal motion, relieving stress and instability at these weight bearing structures.

There are many good SI Belts out there, but as far as quality, comfort, and prices are considered – Serola Sacroiliac Belt seems to be the best in the market. I’d say it was well worth my $38 investment when I was in severe back pain, which was caused by a sports injury.

Visit their website for more info: http://serolabelt.com/new-serola-sacroiliac-belt.aspx.

Hope this info is helpful to others. Good Luck!

Great post.

Youtube has an array of videos demonstrating various back pain exercises.

I was hoping for a few more exercises but what the hell gotta start somewhere.

I suffered with back pain for several years and finally was diagnosed with sever hip degeneration. In the past year I have had a THR and TKR. Needless to say I am not able to pull my legs up to my chest with my knees bent and the exercise above is out also. I did find that doing a yoga bridge brought the best results.
