Previously, I explained how a Backbridge could help you relieve pain caused not only by forward hunching, but also aging, exercise (like sit-ups), and daily life stressors.  You may see your chiropractor or physical therapist a few times a month.  For a fraction of the time and cost of a chiropractor or physical therapist visit, you can use the Backbridge to get back pain relief at home, increase flexibility, and sustain back health.  I believe it is important to complement treatment from medical practitioners with regular and routine stretching to help reduce soreness and tightness, and increase flexibility.

One Saturday afternoon, I received a call from a Grammy-winning recording artist, who was suffering from severe upper back and neck pain.  She was concerned that she wasn’t going to be able to make it through her performance on Saturday Night Live the following day.  Her pain was so bad that she could not turn her head.   I examined her and noticed that her whole muscular system was tight.  I could also tell she was suffering from severe gas pains and she told me that her on-the-road diet consisted of primarily fast foods and processed foods.   After further assessment, I determined the root of her back pain was an inflamed digestive system.

Structural Causes of Back Pain

After working with back patients for about 20 years, I have discovered why many patients don’t achieve back pain relief or perfect posture.  To fix back pain and correct your posture, I have to focus on a patient’s structural, emotional, and digestive issues to get to the truth.  Unfortunately, most doctors don’t pay attention to what the rest of the body is telling them about a patient's pain. A single-approach structural treatment plan may apply if a patient is a certain type of back pain sufferer, but may not work if an individual is a different type of back pain sufferer.  In today’s post, we will focus on potential structural issues that are causing your back pain and poor posture.

Love Yourself

Now, more than ever, we need more kindness. Everyone can probably agree that kindness is good. However, the kindness that I am writing about is self-kindness. While working with patients on a daily basis, I hear people putting themselves down, such as commenting on gaining a few pounds during quarantine, which is not helpful to a patient’s mindset. It’s normal for our bodies to change during new and stressful times. Additionally, too often we reply to compliments with a dig (negative response) about ourselves. As noted in my prior posts, emotions (and mindset) are one of the leading causes of back pain and other conditions.

Best Sleeping Positions To Eliminate Back Pain

As discussed in my previous posts, structural, emotional, and digestive/nutritional causes can lead to back pain.  Getting to the root cause of your back pain is critical to eliminating it. Have you ever considered that your sleeping position may be contributing to that pain in your back or neck?   Certain sleep positions can place unnecessary pressure on the neck, hips, and back, which results in not only stiffness but also back pain. To alleviate the pain and stay limber, your morning routine should include regular stretches, including the Backbridge Extension, and you should utilize proper sleep position.
