Lower back pain

Written by: Tracy Date of published: . Posted in Blog

Today we are talking about lower back pain.
What causes it?
How you can prevent it?

Water
Why should you drink water and how much?
People are under the misconseption that you should drink 2 ltrs of water a day. You would be surprises to know that it is actually 3 ltrs.
What that will make me go for a pee constantly, i hear you say. Yes to start off with it will this is normal.
However give it some time and your body will soon adjust.
Why do i say 3 litre for?
Well because the body can become inflammed and go into fight or flight mode water helps keep the muscles hydrated. Also is great for the skin not drinking enough can give you wrinkles due to the flexibility in the skin tone.
If you have a cat then usually the vet tests to see if it has drunk enough water is to pinch it’s skin and it is the same with humans. If it springs back quickly you are hydrated if it don’t then you are dehydrated.

Phones
Are heads weight is 10 to 11 pounds and our brains are about 3 pounds. So you think about everytime you are looking down. At your phone extra pressure is put on your neck which also can hurt the lower back.

Sitting down
Our bodys are not designed to sit down for long periods of time.
You are at risk of DIABETES due to the fact sitting may change the way your body reacts to insulin, the hormone that helps it burn sugar and carbs for energy.
OSTEOPROSIS due to the weight gain and being stuck the body needs to move to be lubricated.
PELVIS and HIPS it can twist your hips like when you sit ceoss legged
WEIGHT GAIN we need to be active we need to move.
DEPRESSION _ due to inactivity a 15 min walk is needed to boost the endorphines found in the body

If you are sitting down you should be every 30 mins moving and ideally be doing pelvis tilts.

Morning why do i feel stiff
Lack of exercise and movement
Poor posture if you are a face down sleeper then you are putting pressure on your neck and lower back, if you can’t sleep anyway else then rolled up towel under the feet and cushion under the brest bone with the head have a neck cushion with a hole in it.
If you arr a side sleeper place a cushion under one arm and place a pillow inbetween the knees and one at the back of you to stop you rolling
If you are a back sleeper then put a cushion slightly under your bum and under knees.
