The Healing Movement: Another Exercise to Relieve your Back Pain

Some time ago I have promised to show you another exercise to relieve your back pain. On the contrary of already seen lower back stretches, this is an active exercise. Although it may be officially named different, I call it the Healing Movement.


When to use it?

Healing Movement can be used when you have aching back, but the pain is not so severe yet and it allows you to still move.

Or even whenever you like, it’s also good as a help to strengthen main muscles in your body.

Who is it for?

Everybody. πŸ™‚

What do you need?

Comfortable clothes. You may use an exercise mat, but you can always do it on every hard floor, too.


How do I do it?

 

Healing Movement 1

Start from the neutral position, sitting on your heels, back straight.

Go to the table top position, lower legs and palmy on the floor, back straight. Make sure you have all the right angles in your knee, hip and arm area.

Rise to your toes.

Lift one knee for 5 inches, then the other knee. Make sure you have all the right angles, again.

Then make several little steps with your hands and legs at the same time – forward, backward, to the left, to the right, and diagonally in every direction. However it suits you best.

 

 

Do this for one or two minutes. Then lay down in child’s position for relaxation. Your pain will be gone just after few sessions! πŸ™‚


 

I dare you to try it and make your back as painless as possible! πŸ™‚ I would be thrilled to hear your experience with this exercise, cause it surely helped me!!! πŸ™‚ Please, leave the comment below, and I’ll answer you as soon as possible.

    Hi Spela

    Great exercise. How many times a day/week would you do this? and do you find it good for your core as well?

      Hi there, Jessie!
      I would suggest to do this once a day, when you feel discomfort in your back. But it doesn’t hurt either if you do it, when you don’t have any back pain. I incorporate this exercise into my daily workout, and it’s great! (Although I get back pain due to other factors πŸ˜‰ )
      I didn’t emphasize this in the post, but this exercise is really good for your legs, buttocks, arms and also your core. Especially if you try to integrate it with pelvic floor muscles exercise – see here.

      Jessie, thanks for stopping by and reading my post!

      Till next time πŸ™‚
