Keeping It Simple!

Hi and so glad you’ve stopped by to visit!

Here is the simple truth about what works (and doesn’t!) when it comes to relieving lower back pain. There’s tons of advice and dozens of back pain relief programs, but they all boil down to a few tried-and-true exercises. So this site shows you all the exercises so you can find what works for you.

This is not meant to be medical advice, just a sharing of my decades of personal experience successfully managing my own back problem.

I’ve explored everything out there. You who have a back problem know the sobering truth that most back problems are incurable! The best we can do is manage them and avoid or at least keep to a minimum surgery, medication, re-injury and limitations on our activity.

The good news is that you can have a serious back problem and live virtually¬† pain-free! I’m one.

I’ve succeeded for nearly 40 years to avoid surgery and pain medication with 5 minutes of exercise I do nearly every morning. These exercises relieve nearly all of my morning pain and stiffness.

I’m not selling anything here and never will – just sharing what works and hoping to save you time – and back ache! – searching for relief.

And this brings up another important truth about back problems. What works for one person doesn’t always work for the next person. So what I’ve done here is show you the exercises that work for me plus 3 other of the most reputable collections of exercises just for back pain. Together these programs contain all the lower back exercises proven to work for nearly everyone suffering back problems. In other words, some variation of these are what a physical therapist will prescribe.

But again it’s not medical advice. Please get your back problem looked at by a health care professional before trying any of these exercises. It’s so important because sometimes a back problem is a symptom of some other issue entirely! So get yours checked out now!

I accept guest posts – feel free to submit anything helpful about your back problem experience.
