We all have those days when we feel like nothing in our life is going right. Those are the days that stress and back pain seem to love targeting. The combination of stress and back pain can be a vicious cycle. You may find it hard to get through the day, let alone tackle any exercise routine or yoga class. But you don’t have to give in to your pain and give up on everything you enjoy. You just need to know how to manage it correctly, so you don’t end up feeling even worse than before you started. Read on for more information about managing back pain and fixing your aches with a single exercise!
I have a bad back (but then again, who doesn’t?).
Back pain can be a disabling condition that reduces your ability to function normally. It may make simple tasks like lifting a child, bending over, sitting for long periods, and even walking difficult. Fortunately, any natural remedies for back pain make it easier to manage until the pain subsides naturally. If you have low back pain, you are probably looking for ways to ease the discomfort and get back to your usual activities as quickly as possible.
Every day, I do this one Exercise to fix my back pain:

Much of the time, I’m on my feet and walking around. If you work in an office, you know what this feels like. Those hours feel like they last longer than they actually do.
Even if your job isn’t challenging your legs as much as mine is, it feels like everyone is spending more time sitting these days. In fact, we spend more time sitting than sleeping! The average adult sits for almost nine hours every day.
If you think about it, that makes sense: We have computers at home and at work, so we sit more often than we once did. That kind of desk job used to be unusual—now it’s nearly universal.
But even if you don’t spend much time sitting at a desk or in a car, you still aren’t moving around enough throughout the day—which can seriously affect your long-term health.
The standing back extension exercise is something I frequently do throughout the day. We especially need to stretch after sitting for more than an hour.
- Stand up and put your hands on your pelvis to stabilize your balance.
- Then arch your back backward and go back to a standing position again.
The standing back extension exercise is one of the most effective exercises to improve your back health and function. This Exercise targets the lower back, buttocks, and hamstrings by pulling the spine and hips back towards the wall. It’s also an isolation exercise that targets the muscles in the spine and lowers the back while isolating and strengthening the major muscles going through the back – the hamstrings and spinal erectors. This is why it’s so effective.
They are one of the best exercises anyone can do to strengthen their back, flex their spine, and tone their butt. This Exercise can be done every day, regardless of your fitness level or goal.
Give the Exercise a try, and let me know how it helps you.
It may take a few tries before you find the right fit for you, but keep trying until you discover something that helps you feel less stressed and healthier. And if one Exercise doesn’t work for you, don’t give up. There are many others out there to try.
