Exercise to reduce back pain

Low back pain known as lumbar pain is common in late pregnancy. You feel it around your spine approximately at the level of, or a little above, your waist. Sitting or standing for long periods of time and lifting usually make it worse, and it tends to be more intense at the end of the day. To ease this kind of pain, try doing pelvic tilts, which stretch your muscles and, over time, strengthen them as well. Here's how:

• Get down on your hands and knees, arms shoulder-width apart and knees hip-width apart, keeping your arms straight.

• Tighten your abdominal muscles; tuck your buttocks under, and round your back, breathing in.

• Relax your back into a neutral position and breathe out.
• Repeat at your own pace.

  1. Finding the cause of your back pain is a great way to start working on a solution to stop it. Most often, finding proper back support will greatly ease the issue and lead to a more comfortable life. If possible, the best results will come when the pain is spotted in its infancy and prevented from advancing. Chiropractors Denver CO, Denver Colorado Chiropractors
