Don’t let back pain wreck your year… or the rest of your life!
Instead, resolve right now to take your life back from the pain.
Unlike resolutions you may have made in the past — whether to start a New Year or at any time — these are going to be so simple and effective you’re going to want to keep them!
You really can live life with less pain. So start right now by committing yourself to the five resolutions — really the “5 Back Pain Commandments” — below. I promise, they’ll change your life.
Back Pain Resolution #1 – Get Out of Bed and MOVE!
One of the biggest myths about back pain is you should stay in bed until the pain goes away.
Yes, a day or two of rest after an acute injury may help. However, staying in bed for extended periods allow your muscles to get weaker and stiffen up… leaving you in pain longer!
On the other hand, getting up and moving about helps your circulatory system pump oxygen and nutrients to damaged tissue and joints in need of repair and, with the help of your lymph system, carry away waste products as you heal.
And if you’re stuck in bed with back pain, try this fast back pain relief stretch to ease the pain:
While lying on your back, gently raise your knees from the bed to your chest then put slight pressure on your knees for a light stretch in your lower back. Again, listen to your body. This stretch should ease your pain, not add to it.
Back Pain Resolution #2 – Decompress Daily
Yes, relieving stress can help your back. But this time I’m talking about decompressing your spine.
Spinal decompression may be the fastest natural way to relieve back pain… in as little as 10 seconds. And a study at Newcastle University showed regular decompression reduced the need for back surgery by over 70%!
It also does a lot more to keep your back in good shape. Regular spinal decompression restores flexibility and mobility in your spinal joints and ligaments. And it relieves pressure on spinal discs so they can more easily reabsorb lost fluids to cushion your vertebrae better every day.
Just a few minutes spent decompressing your spine each day can give you a lifetime of improved spinal health and less back pain. While inversion tables are a fantastic way to decompress your spine, I’ve recently discovered an even easier way to decompress.
If you have any type of back pain at all you truly owe it to yourself to give this device a try. Then make spinal decompression your new daily routine.
Back Pain Resolution #3 – Restore Your Body’s Pain-Fighting Enzymes
Your pancreas makes enzymes to digest your food. You can also get some from your diet.
But enzymes serve a number of vitally important roles in your body besides digestion that can make a dramatic difference in your back pain… as well as numerous other health concerns including arthritis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, heart disease and cancer to name only a few.
The problem is by around age 27, your body dramatically reduces the number of proteolytic enzymes it makes. These are the important enzymes your body needs to break down fibrin and internal scar tissue to complete the healing process of injuries big and small.
That’s why the best way to speed healing and recovery from all injuries – including back pain – is to replace these proteolytic enzymes to keep your body fully supplied at all times. And there’s no easier way than by taking a daily supplement of Heal-n-Soothe® – the world’s most potent proteolytic enzyme supplement.
If proteolytic enzymes were the only ingredient in Heal-n-Soothe® it would already be a health miracle. But it includes a full dozen of nature’s most powerful natural anti-inflammatories, making sure you’re out of pain and back on your feet fast. Best of all, you can get Heal-n-Soothe® at a special price right now using the link below.
Back Pain Resolution #4 – Eliminate Muscle Imbalances
Like I said earlier, you need to resume normal movement as soon as possible. But beware how “normal movements” may also be causing your pain.
Years ago, when Healthy Back Institute® co-founder Steve Hefferon’s daughter was learning to walk, Steve placed a baby gate at the foot of the stairs to protect her. Rather than open the gate, Steve would lift his leg over the gate each time he needed to use the stairs… more than 30 times a day.
One afternoon while mowing his lawn he felt a radiating pain in his butt. The next time he cut the grass, same thing. He eventually figured out the awkward movement of continually stepping over the gate had led to a muscle imbalance that especially acted up while he mowed.
Why is this important to you? Very simply…
Muscle imbalances are the #1 root cause of all back pain.
What activities are you doing that cause some of your muscles to grow unnaturally tight while opposing muscles become weak as they are seldom used? Driving to work, sitting at a desk or some other seemingly routine and innocent activity could be the root cause of your back pain!
Fortunately, there is an easy way to self-diagnose what muscle imbalances you have and, more importantly, reverse them quickly and easily. Steve and I show you exactly how in our Lose the Back Pain® System, the world’s leading muscle balance therapy system.
At last count we’ve helped over 64,182 people get lasting back pain relief using this simple, step-by-step system. Now they’re staying pain free by using a few targeted daily stretching and strengthening exercises custom tailored to their specific muscle imbalances.
You could enjoy a back pain free life, too, in a few minutes a day!
Back Pain Resolution #5 – Never, Never, Never Give Up!
Sadly, many back pain sufferers make progress but get discouraged when they don’t get immediate 100% relief. Then they turn to harmful drugs and dangerous surgical options.
Resolve today to pursue a healthy, natural path to back pain relief. Try new approaches. In addition to the ones above, there are numerous other ways to naturally relieve pain and help your body heal.
If you get only 80% or 90% relief from the suggestions above, that’s still a tremendous improvement, right? Keep pursuing complete relief by resolving to consistently apply the approaches which have worked for you and try new things.
Need some more ideas? Here you go…
Drink more water. Use far infrared heat to ease back pain flare ups. Eliminate inflammatory foods and nightshades like tomatoes, potatoes, peppers and eggplants from your diet. Check your blood pH and take steps to reduce your acidity. Cleanse your colon. The list goes on and on… and by maintaining your positive attitude and firm resolution to end your back pain you will find relief.
Finally, I’d like to share a brief audio Steve Hefferon recorded awhile back on why you may need to take several approaches to relieve your back pain. Give it a listen, then make your personal back pain resolutions come true starting today!
