There are many reasons why someone may have back pain. However, one of the most common reasons is also one of the most well known: poor posture. Most people have been told since they were children how important posture is, and were probably reminded often to sit or stand up straight, stop slouching, or be careful how you bend. That last part is crucial, and this week's tip is going to focus on that with something we call The Hip Hinge.

Stretching is very important for anyone suffering with Lower Back Pain. In particular, stretching the Hamstring twice a day is one of the easiest things you can do to help provide relief. If your hamstrings are tight, they place extra stress on the lower back. So keeping them loose is crucial for preventing the additional stress from causing even more pain.

Diet Tip #5 on our list of foods that can help with your back pain is a spice known as Turmeric. Most people know it as the main spice in the Indian food Curry; in fact Turmeric is what gives Curry its yellow color. The Indian people have been using it for thousands of years, not just as a spice but as a medicinal herb as well. Turmeric has many beneficial properties that can help not only with your back pain but other health problems as well.

Allen Gill had a long history of back pain, and before he came to us his condition was definitely getting worse. He suffered from a Herniated Disc, and what happens over time with a herniated disc is the inner gel of the nucleus breaks through the outer portion of the disc and pushes into the spinal canal. The Spinal canal is where both very delicate and sensitive nerves and the spinal cord are located. That’s why this condition can become so painful.
