Why Do You Have Chronic Lower Back Pain?
Before getting to the exercises of our favorite new chronic lower back pain treatment, you’ve got to figure out what is the cause of your pain.
Is it your posture when you work?
Do you spend all day at your desk (this is my problem working online)?
Or is it just that you have decreased strength in your hips and core strength (also an issue in my situation )?
We want to take a holistic approach with chronic back pain.
Find out what’s causing the pain then create systems to prevent the cause.
If you don’t stop the source of your pain you’ll never be free of lower back pain.
So how does one do this?
Check Your Ergonomics and Prevent Back Pain
I work online a lot, and my lower back pain is always related to my sitting posture.
I sit far too many hours without taking breaks, and sometimes find myself in awkward positions.
Neck protruding forward, upper back slumped, lower back slouched, etc.
OH, if you need help with sitting posture, check out this post to learn how to monitor and improve your sitting posture.
Find out what’s causing your back pain.
It could be the way you sit when driving, your sleep positions, how you lift objects off the ground, etc..
By knowing the cause of your back pain, you can be proactive to make the appropriate changes in your daily routines.
More Practical Ergonomic Applications..
I’ll Use Myself as the Example Again.
I set my mirrors in my car so that when I’m driving, I’m forced to have good posture in order to use my mirrors.
I put the side and rear view mirrors into position once I’ve found a nice upright sitting posture.
Make sure you don’t have the Turtle Head Posture – Neck/Chin protruding forward.
Another Ergonomic Example:
Recently I purchases a height adjustable lift to be able to work in sitting or standing, like a Veridesk.
I can adjust the computer height and keyboard angle.
This gives me a variety of positions to work from versus being forced to work in an awkward sitting position.
Basic Ergonomic Information:
Proper ergonomics prevent numerous nerve impingement syndromes and chronic pain disorders.
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Golfers and Tennis Elbow
- Neck Nerve Impingement
- Knots in your Upper Back & Neck
With a little preventative care, we can avoid chronic repetitive stress disorders.
Now I can stand while working and move around as my body needs. This alone has made a significant improvement in my chronic lower back pain.
Next we need to get to work and learn some healthy back exercises and leverage this thing called The Invertabelt.
New Chronic Lower Back Pain Treatment: Hello Invertabelt
The Invertabelt provides the necessary therapeutic exercise you need to improve your back health.
It will strengthen, stretch, decompress and return function back to your spine.
It also provides an Overpressure and Decompression to the spine.
Another aspect that I love about this product is that it provides a manual therapy technique that decreases spastic muscle tone in the lower back.
This is something that usually requires the skills of a Physical Therapist.
So you can independently administer this technique whenever you want.
For me, it’s always my lower back (left side) that gets tight. I can stretch it in forward flexion and do prone back extension exercises. Like this…
But my lower back muscles tighten up again once I release from a forward flexion position and return to a standing or sitting position.
When I stand while working, I can pull on the strap of the Invertabelt to give my lower back a firm manual pressure.
This causes those tight low back muscles to relax and I can continue working.
This basically allows me to break my negative lower back pain cycle.
The Invertabelt is also very economical for what you get (basically the perfect ‘Low Back Pain’ Home Exercise Program).
Forget the Doctor visits, Physical Therapy bills or pain pills.
Plus, you can use this product anywhere you go.
I feel that the Invertabelt is the best value of all the products I’ve used to manage lower back pain at home and on my own.
Chronic lower back pain treatment can be thought of in terms of managing inflammation through cold therapy, augment the healing process through massage, heat, therapeutic exercises and stretches.
If you need more practical applications, read our post on how to treat low back pain.
Many times when we have chronic pain, we don’t want to do anything.
That’s the opposite of what we need to do.
Instead we want to find some activity we can engage in that is free of pain and allows for movement.
This will decrease your low back pain while improving upon your daily functions.
In turn, you’ll return to everyday activities and increase your independence with mobility and daily activities.
The Invertabelt provides you with plenty of exercises that will not only decrease your lower back pain, they’ll teach you how to care for your back in the future, if not cure it.
And for that reason, the Invertabelt is the best new chronic lower back pain treatment on the current market.
