Let’s face it, back pains are horrible. There are no two ways about this fact. You can’t just say that “Oh! It is just something I have to live with” or “It is nothing to worry about, it will go away, I’m strong enough to withstand it”.
No! Don’t do that to yourself. It isn’t helping any one.
Back pains are debilitating and should be treated immediately. They generally originate in the muscles, nerves, seep through bones, joints and other parts of the spine. They are generally caused by wrong posture, a traumatic injury from the past, weakness in bones or due to the lack of key nutrient in diet.
Our lives today, are too busy. We hardly have time for ourselves and we just don’t want to stop. In such a scenario, how does one deal with back pains?
If you really think about it, our grandparents and the other ancestors have always had better metabolic systems and have more strength in their bones than we can ever hope for. What is the reason?
They ate well. They did not restrict their diet to only one food group and focused on getting a lot of Vitamin D in their hey days.
Yoga has never left anyone uncharmed and unhealed. You name an ailment and I’m sure there is a position or a suggestion in diet or a breathing exercise that can cure it.
It uses stretches while monitoring breathing simultaneously to help your body bounce back to health.
For Back Pains, we recommend you try this stretch and notice how your back pain vanishes.
