Q. Sometimes I can barely stand or sit. Is walking on treadmill something that can benefit?
Can someone post back strengthening exercises they have used for muscle fitness while trying to relieve muscle tightness. I suffered a back muscle problem a few months back and I haven't quite been able to heal properly. It seems to me that my back muscles tighten up a lot and even cramp up. Sometimes I feel like my lower back is going to split in half from the upper back. Sometimes I can barely stand or sit. Is walking on treadmill something that can benefit?
|A1||muscles need to be strong and long. if it won't happen- many problems can occur. this is why it's important to maintain in physical shape and do stretches. Yoga lessons can be very helpful for you- it's purpose is to help your muscles be long and strong. about the lower back, lay on your stomach while your head is out side of the bed and this will help you stretch your back muscles.|
|A2||When your back acts up, does it make it painful for you to stand up straight and pull you into a sort of hunch to get relief? If so, try this trick: lie flat on the floor with your legs bent in a sitting position, and your legs in a chair. This means your knees at a 90 degree angle, just as if you were sitting in the chair. Doing this periodically for 15 - 20 minutes at a time relieves the pull on those muscles, giving them a chance to relax. Lying on your back in the floor with your knees bent a feet flat on the floor, like you’re going to do sit-ups, lift your pelvis as high as you can comfortable for ten repetitions once or twice a day. This is a great way to strengthen your back muscles. These are both things recommended by my doc and gave me relief.|
