Lose The Back Pain Review

It is hard to express the significance of a realization I have had over the last year because it sounds so trite and so simple. The realization:

You can work with your body to intervene with back pain.

Really, this is major. Really. In fact, if you don’t do your part, any doctor’s services are compromised. In fact, you might be able to do much more for yourself long term than a doctor can do. Let that sink in a minute. The best “quick fix” is an on-going way to balance the muscles when pain begins. Really.

So I was happy to find the Lose the Back Pain program. It is well researched and shows people how to reduce muscle tension to balance and align the spine for each specific back pain condition. It confirms the conclusions I have come to and exceeds my expectations about what to do for each back pain condition.

I reviewed the program in the video below. Then below that is a newscast interviewing one of the developers of the program. It is worth checking out the system. Let me know what you think.

Posture Makes a Big Difference

Posture is one of those things we all have as a tool for reducing back pain. How you stand or sit affects the health of your back. Bad posture grinds away at healthy disc and joint structure.

The good news is that minor adjustments in posture make a big difference. Simple awareness allows you to adjust how you hold your shoulders, your neck and chin. These can pull the rest of the spine up and into place.

There is a method called The Alexander Technique that is simply about posture. Actors,  singers, and musicians use it a lot because of the added benefit they get from it to perform better.

Today I found an interactive screen on Alexander Technique with self-help exercises for posture. These little adjustments affect the whole spine. I am first posting a video on the basic technique, then the Alexander Technique interactive exercises below that to help improve back posture and neck posture.
