Back pain and inactivity do not belong together unless you are recovering from an injury. Being sedentary and laying around the house taking pain medication is the absolute worst thing you can do for your muscular back pain. Building good musculature and strengthening your frame with weight bearing exercise will undo the weakness in your back that keeps you slouched forward. This slouching forward will keep increasing and become even more difficult to reverse if there is no intervention with strengthening exercises.
Stiffness is made worse with pain medications and lying in bed for days at a time. The stiffness – pain – medication – weakness routine becomes a vicious cycle. Begin by stretching the major muscles of the back. This will help increase blood flow as well as help you get ready for your back strengthening routine. Allow a few days of recovery in between your work out sessions to allow your muscles to heal and strengthen.
The INADA HCP-S373 (B) Flex 3s Massage Chair has a back stretching program that can help stimulate and lengthen your muscles and help you on the road to living free from back pain and stiffness.
Of course if you have an injury or a serious connective tissue problem in your spine you must consult a spine specialist. This is the most important thing you can do to begin your rehabilitation and take your life back from back pain.
