    Back Pain Relief
    petersonccc posted:
    My tip for the back pain relief is totally free and you can do it with a chair. Try it, it might work for you.

    When you are in a chair, you simply bend over when your chest almost reaches your knees, then slowly get up. Repeat this for three times, then slowly get up, you will feel pain free.

    I am glad this works for you. However, if back pain is caused by spinal problems such as herniated or bulging discs, stenosis, bone spurs or other degenerative problems this type of movement could increase pain and even possibly cause more damage. I have very serious spinal problems and could not even do this movement.

    Not every treatment, exercise or solution is for every patient. It is vital to discuss everything with your doctor to ensure you will not make your condition worse.

    Oh heavens, this might be A-ok for muscle problems but if I was even able to do what you suggested I would not be able to get back up. You must be dealing with soft tissue not the spine itself. Plus with my lumbar and sac region of my spine being fused I couldn't bend over anyway and - >May I suggest that anyone has cronic pain in their back check with your doctor before even thinking about doing this< thanks for the suggestion petersonccc - but for some I could see this helping but not in my case. Cheers
