(Post # 36) Simple

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex.
It takes a touch of move in the opposite direction."
-Albert Einstein

I would like to suggest an alternative to those who are suffering with simple back pain (pain that is less than 8 weeks):

  • Walk every day for at least 20 minutes.

  • Move around and gently stretch 1 minute for every 30 minutes of sitting.

  • Change posture within a neutral position.

  • When working, try changing position as often as possible.
  • When lifting, get your pelvis close to the object first and then lift.
  • If the above is not enough, find a good therapist or trainer who would teach you the right type of exercises.
