Today, I am showing you how to get some lower back relief, at home!
I am so excited to be sharing a new video this week that will hopefully help you! Since the quarantine has been lifted, many of us still find ourselves staying close to home, but many of us are up and moving more than we had been the previous months, so our backs may be tight or experiencing pain.
Well, I am here to help. Click here to watch my recent video on how to stretch your lower back, without a chiropractor.
Make sure to do these stretches safely and if you need a full adjustment, to make an appointment as soon as possible. CLICK TO HERE TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT OR CALL OUR OFFICE AT 615-352-9379.
Some other ways to help remedy lower back pain, are:
- Exercise. Exercising can help to loosen tense muscles and release endorphins, which are a natural painkiller for our bodies. If you are in pain, we understand that a full exercise routine may not be possible, but start with a short walk, yoga, water exercise, or another low-impact activity, they can often help alleviate the pain.
- Use hot and cold techniques. A heating pad can also relieve stiff or achy muscle, whereas ice packs are most beneficial when a person uses them directly after an injury, such as a strain to help reduce inflammation.
- Practice good posture. Good posture maintains the natural curve of the spine. Use good posture when you sit, stand, walk, and lift things.
We hope that these tips are helpful for you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the office, we’d love to see you!
