If you like to read, maxims or aphorisms are not such a bad way to spend your time. Plenty of these are available over the internet in the form of several websites, and it’s always interested me to find truths in lines such as “In Life not being fair to everyone, it is being fair to each and everyone of us”.
But, to do so one has to be in a philosophical bent of mind, and one where you tend to take Life a bit seriously while doing your soul-searching in ways that seem to provide you answers.
After a point however, one comes to the conclusion that it is pointless to be so driven and serious, and what the situation really demands is a lot less seriousness and humor that can possibly help one take it easy.
Aphorisms and the region located below your “Lower Back”…
And so, one moves on from far more serious versions such as the fabled “Behind every great man is a great woman” to several adaptations such as this one: “Behind every great man is a great woman. And behind every great woman, is a guy looking at her a** (um… the region below your lower back, maybe!) .”
Haha. Gross but realistic… right?
And while there are several men whose wives consider their husbands to be a pain in the a** (Oops, in the region located below your “lower back”), these aches and pains can move to other regions as well for several reasons other than the constant nagging of their wives.
Lower Back Pain
But seriously, lower back pain can be excruciating, and one is better off without the sprain or strain that these muscles in your lower back go through.
However, since almost 80% of people have to experience lumbago at some point of time in their lives or the other, one can safely assume that the causes are several ranging from mechanical to oxygen deprivation and even depression.
The one thing that stops people from becoming active again after is the continuous recurrence of this pain, but it should not deter you from at least making an attempt to be active as much as possible.
What you can do, while choosing to stay active (despite the pain) is to avoid positions that you know strain those lower back muscles while also resorting to medical treatment and nonprescription painkillers just in case, it hurts.
When it comes to exercises for lower back pain, one should know that they aren’t complicated and can be done from home but one should consult with the physician before trying them.
Lower Back Pain Exercises
And which brings us to the next question: So what can one do from an exercise point-of-view when one has lower back pain?
Firstly, you have to find gentle strengthening exercises for your stomach, back and legs, which will not only prevent re-injury but will speed up the process of recovery.
Here’s a sample video that stretches the tight muscles (which cause discomfort and pain in the lower back) around the hips, thus relieving pain with each time you complete the routine. And I say sample because this is a delicate medical matter, and thus this routine has only been provided so as to provide one with an idea as to what kind of exercises are conducted for the same.
Please CONSULT your physician before doing any kind of exercises such as these!
Considering the fact that this ‘nagging’ pain is just as excruciating as the aphorism “Behind every great man there is a woman rolling her eyes.”, the truth of it all is that the former is preventable through working out regularly… but the latter (marriage… I mean) is inevitable. You know, there’s someone for everyone… and it doesn’t if they call that person your ‘bitter half’!
