Chronic and acute back pain is an all-too-common ailment that plagues a huge portion of the population. Today we are talking about this widespread issue and shedding light on the vital role the body's foundation plays in this ongoing battle. We'll take a closer look at how the root causes that contribute to discomfort and pain in the lower back and how addressing them can lead to a path of healing and relief.
One of the fundamental reasons for the prevalence of low back pain is the body's foundation. Our core, situated between the ribs and the pelvis, is a critical area that requires proper support for correct posture and alignment. When this core is not adequately supported, our bodies are subject to the gravitational forces that can lead to twisting, collapsing and, ultimately, pain. If the foundation is compromised, the entire structure above it will be affected. This concept emphasizes the significance of addressing the body's foundation to alleviate low back pain effectively.
Proper diaphragmatic breathing is vital for initiating the body's healing mechanisms. By breathing correctly, we expel toxins, enhance oxygen intake, and help expand the areas in our body that have collapsed due to poor posture. This first step is important in alleviating low back pain by releasing tension and increasing breath capacity.
To combat low back pain effectively, we must address the root cause, which often begins with poor foundation support. After achieving proper breathing, the process involves systematically releasing tension and then rebuilding strength. By focusing on the core, ribs, and pelvic alignment, we can release tension and pressure within the low back, allowing for pain relief.
Misalignment in one area, such as the feet, can also lead to issues in the pelvis, which, in turn, affect the entire spine and cause pain. Trace back your journey with low back pain and consider how misalignments and lifestyle factors may have contributed to your current situation.
Chronic low back pain is a widespread issue that affects countless individuals. By addressing issues like poor posture, twisting, and core collapse, and focusing on breathing, release, and rebuilding, you can find relief and embark on a path to healing. If you've been grappling with low back pain, consider this podcast episode as your first step towards a pain-free future.
