For the traveler, dealing with sciatica and back pain can be especially bothersome. Getting out of your sciatica and back pain exercise routine, added stress, and excessive demands on your back from sitting and maneuvering your luggage can play havoc on a healing back. Continue reading →
Malton: My spine has a tilt to the left, yet the xrays don’t show anything significant. I believe it is posture and flexibility related. I do have pain sometimes, but not severe. My pain is pretty much muscle spasms of varying severity. Over the years, I have had good success in managing my back pain through the teachings of Dr. Sarno. I truly can see an increase and decrease in back pain right along the stress and anger levels of my life. My question is: How do I fix this misalignment that has my hips and shoulders our of whack? Stretching? If so which ones? Exercise? Again which ones? Thanks! Dan

Back pain relief is accomplished through the reduction of inflammation and the restoration of function.
But, as we age, the healing process takes longer than when we were younger.

Lower back exercises to relieve back pain are prescribed routinely by doctors and therapists. Most of these back pain relief exercises, however, are useless in providing long term back pain relief.

Back pain treatment that incorporates the use of back supports is controversial.
Some health care providers insist that the use of a back brace will “weaken the muscles of the trunk” or creates a “dependency” on the brace. Other providers recognize that the use of a back brace helps patients return to full function sooner and avoid the harmful effects of inactivity.
Treatment for spinal stenosis can produce immediate and long lasting back pain relief. I’ve prepared a video today that demonstrates one of the simple back pain exercises I use to treat spinal stenosis.
Spinal stenosis is a condition that is characterized by narrowing of the opening through which the nerve exits the spine. It is related to degenerative disc desease, disc herniation, disc bulging, or disc protrusion.
In many cases tight muscles that attach to the spine or pelvis can cause the spinal opening to narrow. Because of this narrowing, sciatica (pinched nerve) symptoms can ensue.
One of the muscles that affects the position of the pelvis is the rectus femoris muscle. A tight rectus femoris results in the pelvis rotating forward which can cause the spine to bend backwards, resulting in further narrowing of the spinal opening.
By effectively stretching the rectus femoris, the pelvis is able to maintain its normal position, thus reducing the negative influence it could have on the spine.
More back pain relief treatment for spinal stenosis can be found in the Erase Your Back Pain program.
