9 Things To Take Pressure Off Your Back
8 May 2020
Our spine and back bear a tremendous amount of load day-in, day-out. Here are 9 simply quick things that you can do to lighten the load.
Pressure Relievers For The Back
|Pressure Relievers||Why They Work|
|To reduce the excessive lordorsis (inward curvature of a portion of the spine) that some people may have especially in standing. Particularly those with weak abdominals. The foot on stool will take the pelvis into posterior pelvic tilt, hence reducing the lordosis|
|Allows the different postural muscles to have a little rest. The spine is made of many vertebrae stacked on top of each other, allowing each segment to move. Therefore, our spine is built for movement and not to be in one position for a prolonged period of time|
|Reduces torque on the lower back.|
|Offers the back a chance to rest after a period of sustained bending. Muscles can get strained and fatigue, thus compromising the support to the lumbar spine|
|Allows the spine to stay in an optimal position as you work, without having the back muscles constantly supporting you. It also facilitates the neck to be aligned properly|
|Reduces loading of the back muscles and disc pressure. As the muscles fatigue, our bodies will adopt a rounded upper back posture to compensate, resulting in poor posture and associated injuries|
|Prevents fatigue mentally and physically to allow some mobility in the spine and stretch out muscles that are placed in the shortened position as we drive|
|Allows the back to be in a proper posture. Weight shifting offers pressure reliefand cruise control allows the foot to rest and not sustained effort on the accelerator Vibrations can cause injury to the back|
|The spine will be well supported when it is in the neutral position|
