Bad backs can be caused by many minute pinched muscles in your lower back. In order to get rid of the ongoing pain once and for all, they should be released often and relaxed. Also relaxing them prevents further damage from being done to the discs by the constant pressure on them. This being the main reason and cause of the slipped, bulging and ruptured discs, nothing else can put that much pressure on them to cause that to happen.
Being in a sedentary job and sitting down at your computer all day on an office chair, actually does more damage than one would think. We are all so quick to blame our computer desk height etc etc but that is not it at all.
Here is a technique that can teach you how you can learn to relax/release those muscles to free them up a bit more to relieve pain.
Place your left hand on your left leg next to your body. Place your right hand over your left shoulder, fingers over the back and the palm in the front and firmly press on them and hold. After 30 seconds slowly lower your body forward and to the outside of your left leg, keeping your left arm fairly straight as you do. When you reach your lap remain there for another 10 seconds, release the pressure but rest there for another 30 seconds. Then reverse your hand positions and do your right side.
I started doing this two months ago now and I feel it is starting to help somewhat. I definitely do not feel as stiff in my back, or sore for that matter, so I can only assume it is working as I have changed nothing else in the past couple of months!
