Overloading your back
Before you start the exercise program, I think it is important that you know that an overload of your back is usually the cause of throwing your back out. This means that you have put more strain on your back than your back can handle. For example, a wrong sitting posture for a long time and wrong or too heavy lifting are often causes of throwing your back out. A cramped posture and stress also contribute to this.
Stiff back muscles
The result of throwing your back out is that your muscles contract and stiffen. This is a logical reaction of your body. Your body contracts the back muscles to prevent pain or damage. Your body protects itself with this reaction. The same happens, for example, when there is an imminent danger. Your body is already preparing for what is to come. Just look at what you do if you are scared of something. Exactly: you quickly contract all your muscles to protect yourself!
How do you get rid of the pain and stiffness? Read on! Are you ready for three important tips?
Tip 1: relieve your back strain
Give your back a rest. Do not lift. Avoid unexpected movements. But beware: keep moving! Besides doing relaxing exercises for your back, you can walk or swim after you have thrown your back out. By doing exercises without strain, you ensure that your back muscles relax and recover.
Besides exercising, warmth contributes to the relaxation of your back muscles. For example, wear a shirt that fits well on your lower back or take a warm bath.
Tip 2: stay active
Research has shown that the after a while most people are recovered from lower back pain. But there is a good chance that the pain will return after recovery. This does not have to deter you from activities. The most important thing is to keep moving.
Tip 3: treatment after throwing your back out
Good exercises help you quickly recover from throwing your back out. By relaxing exercises for your back, symptoms such as back pain and stiffness often disappear after a few days. After that you can increase your stability. This will prevent you from throwing your back out again.
Throwing your back out, what to do?
After throwing your back out, you can look for a solution in medication against pain or in medication for a reduction of muscle tensions. This may be a short-term solution, but it will not solve the cause. According to recent research, responsible movement promotes the recovery of lower back pain. After that, exercise therapy helps you to continue your normal functioning.
Strain of your back
Your muscles that provide stability of your back are affected. A good stability of your lower back is important to prevent your back from throwing your back out in the future. Your abdominal and back muscles play an important role in the stability of your back. These muscles give you protection and strength.
The real way to get a pain-free back is to no longer wait, but to start immediately. In short: the exercise program helps you faithfully do the right exercises. This will reduce back pain and stiffness within a few days. Then you gradually build up the stability of your back. This increases the strain on your back. Surely you also want to prevent yourself from throwing your back out again in the future.
