3 Best Self-Massage Moves to Relieve Back Pain

2

Filed Under (General) by Rick Kaselj



Hey, I am on the road again. I’m heading to San Diego for a Fitness Conference. So, I will keep this brief.

The last time I went to San Diego, I had some back pain due to my long flight. Here are a few self massages that helped me alleviate back soreness and recover from pain.

Enjoy the exercises!

===============================================================

Today, I wanted to show you three back pain massage exercises you can easily do at home.

#1 – Foam Roller on the Wall

Stand against the wall and place a foam roller behind your back, just about your pelvis height. Lower yourself into a squat position, rolling along the wall.

Perform 1 set of 5 reps on each side, total of 10 reps in a smooth and controlled movement up and down. This exercise targets to loosen up the mid-lower back area. This area often becomes stiff and tight during back pain.

#3 – Foam Rolling the Gluteus Maximus

Sit on the foam roller, just below the sit bones or ischial tuberosity. Keep your feet flat on the floor and shoulders extended backwards to support your weight. Roll through the sit bones and then come up to the pelvis area.

If you have shoulder pain while doing this exercise, move your shoulders a little bit more forward to reduce the strain on the shoulders.

Foam Rolling into Gluteus Maximus

Give these 3 back pain relief massage exercises a go to lessen your back pain in no time.
