Use the right position to fix your low back pain

We hear quite often that ๐Ÿ’บ sitting is the new ๐Ÿšฌ smoking. But that’s not always the case, especially with low back pain. And in fact, sitting may be a good option for you.
Low back pain can often be categorized by the motion that causes pain. Extension intolerant people tend to get pain when extending their spines (back bends, large anterior pelvic tilts, overhead movements). Flexion intolerant backs hurt more when flexing forward (sitting, forward folds, touching your toes). And each one can get relief in different ways.
Standing puts your spine in more โšŸ extension. So those people that get flexion based pain typically find relief from standing up and walking around.
Sitting decreases the โšž lumbar curve. For those who have extension based pain, sitting down can actually be a welcome relief.
How can you use this info?
A key in fixing low back pain is understanding and finding ways to control ๐Ÿ˜  pain triggers so that they can ๐Ÿ˜Œ desensitize. Use the info provided here to take the appropriate “micro-breaks” throughout the day and avoid setting off a trigger from staying in one position for too long.
So let’s take a poll. Which one is better for you? ๐Ÿ’ƒStanding or ๐Ÿ’บsitting? Sound off below and let me know!
