If you have back pain, it is perfectly normal and means you need to stretch more often. Either way, getting back pain should be a red flag that it’s time to take action.
I have an interview for you today.
I was the subject of the interview that Cameron Makarchuk conducted.
But before we talk about everything we had, let’s have a short intro.
By the end of the day, your back is probably sore and painful if you spend most of the day sitting at a desk. Long durations of time spent sitting are linked to back discomfort and other aches and pains. And while there are strategies to manage back pain, there are no quick solutions for it (and prevent it from coming back).
If you have been experiencing frequent or chronic lower back discomfort, these tips will help you understand why this is happening, what’s causing it, and how you can start easing your pain. Read on for strategies that can relieve your back aches.
Here we go; I hope you enjoy the conversation:

When you’re working out, it may feel like your muscles are the only things being taxed. And while that is true to an extent, your body works in much more complicated ways than simply contracting and releasing a single muscle to complete a task. Injuries and pain from working out almost always have something to do with your body’s balance between opposing muscle groups.
Think of it this way: When you work out one side of your body more than the other, it’s referred to as a “muscle imbalance.” This happens commonly with certain types of workouts – such as running on a cambered road or lifting heavy weights on one side of the body more than another – which can lead to imbalanced posture, strength, and even joint function down the road.
Today, my fans, friends, and subscribers can access the Fix My Back Pain program.
You can find the Fix My Back Pain program on exercisesforinjuries.com, EFI’s Facebook page, and the EFI YouTube channel.
It will be available only in those areas for a limited time and will not be accessible to everyone until later this year.
Back pain is no fun. It can make you feel like crap and be very distracting. So now you know what to do to fix your back pain issues.
