Getting out of bed is something that almost everyone does on a daily basis. It seems simple enough for most people, but anyone who is suffering with back problems know that even the tasks that seem the easiest can be some of the most challenging. For people with back, neck, or sciatica pain, just getting out of bed can not only be difficult, but extremely painful.

This Back Pain Relief Tip is about the proper way to get out of bed so that you do not put extra pressure on the spine and cause more pain. We call it the Logroll! To learn more about this technique, click the headling above or the picture to the right!

Sciatica Stretches Tip #5 - Sphinx

This Sciatica Stretch is called the Sphinx, or Lower Abdomen Stretch. This exercise is going to help stretch your abdominals while also assisting in pushing a bulging disc back into place. This is a manual way to try and decrease your sciatica symptoms that are being caused by a disc bulging onto a nerve.
