back pain breathingSurprisingly, breathing the wrong way can actually cause or perpetuate your back pain. Many of us don’t even realize that we are breathing incorrectly in the first place. In our culture we tend to try and hold our stomachs in which is causing us to breathe incorrectly. If you breathe in and your expanding your ribcage you’re breathing is wrong. It is important to breathe through your diaphragm. Here are some tips on how to breathe correctly to avoid back pain.

The Right Way To Breathe

  • Focus on breathing with your stomach.
  • Pushing your stomach out and in.
  • Your stomach should go out as you breathe.
  • Avoid breathing with your ribcage and that will ease your back pain.

Breathing properly won’t solve your back pain issues but it will improve them. The more you breathe improperly the more likely you back pain will worsen.
