Care for a Better Back
essential to use a good
rebounder when performing Starbound Wokouts.
Mini trampolines must provide a cushioned but stable surface tension and most important that this is observed if you have had any back tension, joint problems or injury.
The common symptoms of Lower Back Pain
If the Lower Back Pain is sudden, a severe stabbing pain may be felt, which
might subside quickly or persist.
A more gradual onset of the symptoms of Lower
Back Pain will start mildly, but may build up causing severe discomfort.
Many of the symptoms of Lower Back Pain are due to stiffness of the joints or
muscle spasm of the muscles surrounding the spine.
What are the causes of Lower Back Pain?
A main cause of Lower Back Pain is any movement which places excessive stress
or loading on the spine that can cause injury.
One of the most common causes of Lower Back Pain is from poor posture, which can
be caused by being hunched over a PC or games console, driving position, wearing
high heels and carrying heavy bags.
Poor posture puts the spine and pelvis in the wrong alignment, which causes the
strain on the spinal joints and soft tissues related with Lower Back Pain.
posture reduces the effectiveness of the multifidus muscle and so stability
of the spine is often affected
Lower Back Pain is also caused from overload, for example, lifting an object or
a cumulative overload, like repeated asymmetrical lifting or pulling as with
Who does Lower Back Pain affect?
Lower Back Pain can affect everyone.
80% of the population will experience lower
back pain during their lives.
People with poor posture, such as those who work at desks for long periods of
time, who drive long distances, wear high heels regularly, carry heavy bags or
play on games consoles are more susceptible to Lower Back Pain.
Lower Back Pain
in sport especially affects rowers (less for those who skull as the
sport is more symmetrical), javelin throwers and high jumpers.
Tennis players can experience Lower Back Pain, especially after a
high intensity training session practicing service.
What are the treatments
for Lower Back Pain?
Treatment for Lower Back Pain mainly consists of paying attention to the cause of your Lower Back Pain better left in the hands of a specialist to diagnose.
Lumbar rolls, such as McKenzie lumbar rolls, can help to encourage correct
posture while sitting and can be used in all kinds of situations.
Seat wedges and cushions also provide the same treatment for Lower Back Pain.
Massage products and heat therapy can also help to relieve the symptoms of Lower
A back support, such as the Vulkan Back Support, will provide additional support
and cushioning to the back for Lower Back Pain.
For acute Lower Back Pain, try a back support that offers sufficient support to
limit the speed of movement and so minimise the amount of pain.
As the acuteness wears off, movement is necessary to help the healing process of
Lower Back Pain, so a supportive brace is helpful, but try and make sure
movement is not too restricted at this time.
You can also carry out mobilising exercises for stiff joints and nerve tissue to
reduce muscle spasm and keep mobile.
If you experience sudden Lower Back Pain or have ongoing Lower Back Pain, you
should seek medical advice from a healthcare professional.
tips for back pain prevention
Always warm up and cool down and stretch thoroughly before and after taking part
in any physical or sporting activity in order to reduce the risk of injury.
Make sure your back is both
strong and mobile, and work consistently at your rehab if your
back has been injured
Try to avoid long periods of sitting, bending and heavy lifting.
TOPICAL TIPS FOR BACK CARE &
REBOUNDING THROUGH REHABILITATION
Inflammation in the small joints and ligaments in your spine is eased when
gently pulsing on quality rebounders , encouraging mobility and restricting
pain from settling in.
Damaged discs, often result from carrying unacceptable loads. Your discs,
which consist of mainly protein and water, depend on the exchange of nutrients
and oxygen, from surrounding tissue, to nourish them.
Even when gently pulsing on a quality mini trampoline, the weight of your body
creates hydrostatic pressure, with muscular pressure and your body weight
squeezing fluid from the disc.
Osmotic pressure sucks fluid into your discs, helping to create a balance of
the pressures at work.
About eight out of ten people are expected to suffer with back pain sometime
in their lives. I recommend always seeking the advice of your medical
practitioner before commencing your rebounding programmes.
Vary your posture throughout the day and take regular breaks to reduce
postural tension in the lower back
At your desk, check that your chair provides adequate support for your lower
back. Consider using a lumbar roll. Make sure your feet don’t dangle – use a
footrest if necessary.
When gardening, consider using long-handled tools to help take the strain off
When you are ready to resume rebounding workouts your focus wil be on breathing techniques and postural vibrational pulsing - nothing more. Integarte gentle mobliity techniques into very small workouts of no more than five minutes to begin. Always work very gently in your comfort zone - focus onbreathing techniques such as those outlined in my Starbound book - Breathaking Resolution Plan.
