Back problems rank second as the most frequent complaint of patients. Here are some helpful tips and suggestions for anyone experiencing the onset of recent Back Muscle Pain, or simply want to stop the possibility of it occurring to them. The most important thing is to be aware of your movements. If you are able to identify these patterns, you are already on the right track to tackling the issue and preventing or solving it from happening.
This QL Claw tool for muscle relaxation was developed to meet a demand for a superior massage device. Our founder was suffering for 4 years of back pain that was crippling and was frustrated by the lack of products to meet his needs to create a tool that provides deep tissue massage for the low back, hip as well as glute muscle. He decided to satisfy his desire and develop an even better product and QL Claw was born.
A key aspect of every new experience is that it is unexpected. Be aware of any recent changes to your habits of moving. Perhaps, for instance, did begin a new job that has you working longer hours than you are used to? Have you changed your cell phone or do you spend longer talking on the phone? Are you using your cell phone often when driving? Many of us hold cell phones between our shoulders and heads and that is one method to cause muscular discomfort. Therefore, you might want to purchase a speakerphone for your desktop or vehicle.
Have you recently updated your living room or computer arrangement to be able to watch television? Do the chairs you sit in to perform your work or the sofa where you watch television, offer solid support for your neck and back? Do you feel your lower back is supported? If you notice yourself leaning towards your computer or putting your hands or arms in the same position when watching television (such as leaning against one shoulder) this is something you can change.
PT Assistance for Relief
Your physician can suggest a PT assist you in the reduction or elimination of back discomfort. These professionals are trained to identify any poor posture or postural habits and help you to eliminate or correct the problem. However, before you commit an enormous amount of time (and perhaps even cash) with a professional take note of your own movements for a few minutes. You could even monitor your time on the TV, on the computer, on the phone, and so on to observe patterns in this.
Identify Source of Stress
With increased awareness of your body, you will often identify the source of stress that’s the cause of your back discomfort. Be aware that the body is not built to handle the modern tasks we expose to. Back in the days of a simpler life, when there was lesser-specialized work, people were more likely to change their routines significantly all day. They were usually shorter in length and dependent on the effort required. This meant that your heart was pumping at various speeds and allowing you to get some exercise and then time to rest before you tackle the next challenge.
Changes in habits are not always straightforward, but if find yourself looking at back muscle discomfort or even the fear of it as an opportunity to improve your life quality you can. Take whatever steps you can to remind yourself to stay aware of what you are doing in your body. Physical therapists may have their clients use brightly colored adhesive dots on well-chosen places in their homes in order to remind them of their posture.
