It is one of the most common pains. Keeping your back flexible while toned is vital to preventing uncomfortable “lumbago attacks” but there are exercises that will also help you in those times of crisis.
Have you ever had your back nailed? The truth is that it would not be strange, since low back pain is the biggest cause of disability in the world, far above any other disease. In the world, chronic low back pain in women is 7.5% and 7.9% in men
A pain, which can occur suddenly and can last from a week to 3 months (acute low back pain), or extend over time, then known as chronic low back pain.
Why does lumbago appear?
Low back pain can be caused by many different reasons:
A poor posture was maintained for a long.
Lift / carry weight.
A great overexertion or many efforts added over time.
Working long hours standing or sitting.
Squat down by bending your back, instead of bending your legs.
Being over your weight.
Living in a stressful situation.
How to avoid getting “nailed”
When there is a “lumbago attack” it is best to start mobilizing the spine as soon as possible. Rest can be counterproductive in these cases. Logically, you will have to adapt the exercise to your discomfort but it is better that you try to mobilize yourself a little.
The exercises that we have presented are movements that you can do very gently when the lower back is sore to eliminate tension and massage your spine naturally.
Perform all movements slowly and bend your legs or back only as far as you do not feel pain. Little by little you will gain mobility.
Remember that if you feel any kind of pain when performing them, you should stop and consult your doctor immediately.
