Back Pain

Laid out on the couch because of back pain? Believe it or not, you’ll recover more quickly if you stay active instead of resting.
Back pain got you down? Don’t give up — get up. Researchers found that people who were advised to stay active despite their pain recovered more quickly than those who were told to rest. That doesn’t mean you should wince your way through a grueling workout, but you should resume your normal activities.

According to the study’s researchers, inactivity combined with pain can turn into long-term disability, depression and even more agony. To help alleviate lower back pain and restore strength and function to prevent further injury, practice gentle mind-body workouts like tai chi or yoga.

Taking typical walks or just getting up and doing a few stretching exercises will go along way towards stopping back pain. Sitting for lengthy periods of time will bunch up your muscles & cause strain & tension.
