The 3 R's
Here's a little something to help reduce your back pain. I like to call it the 3 R's. This will come in handy, if you follow the 3 R's you will save yourself some pain and in the long run will have a healthier back.
Just what are the 3 R's?
One of my favorite ways to relax is to close my eyes and mentally scan my body from head to toe releasing any tension in the muscles. If I find an area that seems tense or uncomfortable I will shift positions or tighten then loosen the muscle then move on to the next area and do the same there. When I have worked my way from head to toe I usually feel much better. It's important to not concentrate on your back pain during this process, you'll find that by the time you've relaxed your way down to your back pain that it's already feeling somewhat better. This method of relaxation takes time, don't rush through it. If you don't feel better after the first "scan" do it again from head to toe.
There are many relaxation techniques to choose from, try to find one that works for you. Back pain sucks, remember the 3 R's.
a Healthy Back!
