Back pain can have a negative impact on your whole life. Not only can the pain cause you problems when you are awake, but it can also keep you from getting a good night’s rest. This causes a vicious cycle that is hard to break out of with the pain taking over all parts of your life. If you suffer from back pain and are ready to free yourself from it then read onto learn about three simple exercises that can change your life and help free you from this pain.
Carefully lie on your back on the floor. Keep your knees bent with your feet flat and your arms gently at your sides. You need to tighten your buttock and abdominal muscles and slowly raise your hips, forming a bridge with your body. Keep your body flat from your shoulders to your knees while in this position. Hold for up to 10 seconds, then slowly lower and repeat ten times.
First get into the same position as you did to perform the bridge exercise. Once you are comfortable, begin by tightening your abdominal muscles and pressing the small of your back into the floor. Hold this move for five seconds, then relax. After a moment, repeat. You will repeat this exercise ten times.
Flip over to your stomach and press your upper body off of the floor with your hands. Your hands will be flat on the ground and close to your body to provide the support necessary to do this. Tighten your abdominal muscles as well as your buttocks. Hold for five seconds, then lower back down to the ground to allow your back to relax. Repeat ten times. As you repeat this exercise over time, you will slowly be able to go farther and farther into the stretch. Press yourself back to encourage a good stretch, but don’t push too far that you accidentally injure yourself.
Your core muscles are located around your abdomen and are responsible for keeping your back strong and free from pain. These three simple exercises along with stretches are easy to do anywhere, at any time, and will help you eliminate any back pain that you may have. If you are lucky enough that you don’t have any back pain yet, it’s still a good idea to incorporate these moves into your daily life, as they can help you from developing back pain in the future.
