Back Pain - 3 Exercises to Relieve Pain

Pressure and stress are common symptoms of the hectic life we lead, and unfortunately, can contribute to back and neck pain. In addition, we continue to work (many of us) in environments where we sit for long periods of time in front of a computer. For some people, sitting in a chair for 40 hours or more a week is the fastest way to develop back pain, and the most worrying thing is that many have never felt this kind of pain before, never had back, back, shoulder problems or neck pain.

Based on this growing current problem, here are some exercise tips you can do to prevent this type of condition or reduce and calm the pain.

Exercise 1
Lie on your back with both legs bent at right angles or on a chair or block. Rest your hands on your stomach or lie down with your arms below your shoulder level with your palms facing up. Breathe in and let your lower back relax. Hold for 5-10 minutes.

Exercise 2
Lie on your back with one leg resting on a chair, with your knee bent at 90 degrees, while the other leg is completely straight and resting on the floor. Make sure both legs are aligned with your hips and shoulders. Hold this position for a few minutes and do the same on the other side.

Exercise 3
Go hiking, even if you only get it for 10 minutes, try to do it.

These are just 3 simple exercises that can help you soothe these types of aches, however they do not replace any medical evaluation. You should consult your doctor and perform the necessary medical tests.
