Back Pain is usually a result of postural neglect, poor lifting techniques, stretching and exercising too little (or by exercising without first warming up and winding down properly).
“It doesn’t need to be some catastrophic even to cause it, just the straw that breaks the camel’s back.” says Gerard J. Girasole, MD, orthopaedic spine surgeon and author (with Cara Hartman) of The 7 Minute Back Pain Solution
Popping a painkiller and going to bed is the wrong plan of action. Lying down will just cause the muscles to shorten and spasm.
The right plan of action is “early, active motion” as Girasole puts it. This “will put the area into reparative mode. By stretching the muscles you’ll let the blood come in and oxygenate the area.”
In the The 7 Minute Back Pain Solution, Girasole reveals 7 back-saving stretches that take only 7 minutes to help you minimize any future injuries.
I’ve tried all sorts of massage therapists, chiropractors and others and find that they just keep doing the same routine over and over. Morgan is able to target the problem area and address it and still give you a fantastic overall massage. Each visit is unique. He is simply the best.
