Your spine is one of the most important areas of the body. Just about all of your nerves run down the spinal cord, eventually connecting to your brain. It also supports the rest of the body, which is why more often than not, if you have a pain or an ache, it is in your back. If you are suffering from back pain there are a few different ways you can go about reducing or completely relieving the pain you are suffering from.
The pain in your back might not be due to the alignment of your spine but simply the muscles. Massage therapy can work through the tension you build up from sitting at work throughout the day and help restore your comfortable muscular system. Like most other treatment methods though, this is not something you can simply do once and be done. You need to go in every few weeks or once a month to have your back worked on. Going in just once a year is not going to do much good.
You might laugh at those old Jazzersize workout videos, but using a free range of motion is more helpful than just burning the calories (and slipping into a leotard). It helps stretch out all of your muscles in the back and prevents it from tightening up.
Exercise Core Muscles
While it might sound odd, working out your abdominal muscles and lower back can greatly reduce any sort of back pain you suffer. These muscles help stabilize the spine and also help with supporting the lower lumbar. However, most of these muscles are usually not properly worked out, so the muscles are weaker than most of the other muscles in the body and it can result in a sore back. With stronger core muscles it reduces the amount of weight the rest of the muscles need to support when holding up your spine and lumbar system.
