Think about that for a moment. That means that nearly 70% of the people that you interact with a regular basis are somehow slowed down or debilitated because they are living with constant and chronic back pain that they just cannot shake. This causes a serious decline in lifestyle across the board, regardless of whether or not you’re a young buck of just 18 or an older and wiser member of society at 80+. Worst of all is that there are so many phony solutions out there – and we use solutions in the loosest term possible here – that promise the moon and the stars when it comes to erasing your back pain forever. As close to modern-day snake oil as it gets, there are a bunch of less than ethical marketers out there looking to do nothing more than separate you from your hard-earned money with promises of alleviating your back pain, but never really live up to these expectations. Thankfully though, eliminating back pain (almost entirely in many cases) is a lot easier than we have been led to believe. You just have to know the simple tips and tricks with included for you below! Stretch for the stars and straight and out your back One of the most beneficial things you could ever do to improve your quality of life and completely destroy back pain (lower back as well as upper back pain) is to take up a regular stretching routine that you stick to on a consistent basis. Sure, it probably doesn’t seem like stretching out for 10 or 15 minutes every day just after waking up and right before bed is going to do too terribly much, but nothing could be further from the truth. With the right stretching routine (and some real consistency on your part), you’ll be able to give your back a break – in a good way – and introduce a bit more spring and suppleness throughout your body. You’ll be able to stretch out your muscles, reduce pain and inflammation, and basically erase pressure, all of which will help to wash away your back pain almost immediately. Sitting the wrong way hurts! Most of us spend a lot of time these days sitting at a desk and most of the time the chair we have simply don’t offer enough support. This is where a lumbar cushion can help. They help give your lower back the support it needs in just the right place. They are well worth investing in! The stronger you are, the better your back will feel The last piece of insider information that will leave you with is at first a little bit contradictory sounding, but we hope that you will give it a shot. Even if you’re dealing with significant back pain, one of the fastest ways to alleviate that stress and banished that pressure from your life forever is to hit the gym and exercise all of those muscle groups. Sure, for the first few days you’re going to feel as if you were hit by a train, but after you really get into the flow of things, you’ll strengthen your back significantly and create defenses against future back pain while alleviating the pressure that exists today.
