This week we’re taking a look at a part of the body that can cause many issues for people if not taken care of properly… the lower back. It seems as though we all go through a time in our lives where we can suffer from lower back issues. This is very common especially as we age.
We may not realize it but we use our back in everything we do. This can become very clear when we injure ourselves and are unable to do simple activities like walking or sitting. Our lower back is so important to us and because of this, we must take extra care when keeping it in good health.
In This Episode You Will Learn:
1). Why the lower back is one of the most consistent areas that people bring up when they are experiencing pain and why it’s so common.
2). What areas make up our lower back exactly and how we may not realize how many muscles back pain can affect.
3). How posture plays a big role in helping keep your lower back in good shape and it’s something you can concentrate on every day.
4). Tips on taking care of our backs when we are in different positions like laying down or sitting.
5). Some suggestions of exercises /stretches you can try everyday to help keep your back loose, strong and ready for your daily activities.
