    Back pain exercise / stimulation 17th May 18 at 11:11 AM
    Back pain exercise / stimulation


    I was googling for ideas on back pain and would like to know your opinions as I know back pain is a very common thing. This is concerning back pain where no real cause can be found from an initial doctor visit and xray and the pain has lasted several years.


    My question is does anyone know if a $37 video from this course (or a number of similar ones) https://mybackpaincoach.com/cb/wsl/


    contains anything more effective ot even anything different to a few simple tips and exercises such as these: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercise/lower-back-pain-exercises/


    (nhs page) Any comments appreciated.

    What sort of pain are you getting?
    Has anyone suggested to you that it could be muscular?
    Are you male/female (I'm told weak abs are very common in women).

    I have weak abs which means my back is not supported.
    The answer is building a strong core with pilates.
    There are many free things on youtube, but I would recommend going to a class to start off with because you get help if you need it.
    Once you know what you're doing then it should be relatively safe to use DVDs/youtube exercises.

    A TENS machine, acupuncture, pilates, yoga, physiotherapy, gentle walking and swimming are all recommendations for back pain

    All good advice. If swimming, back-stroke is recommended as it is best for building core strength.

    Thank you for your responses. I guess my question is more along the lines of, do you think DVDs or web sites claiming almost miraculous recovery stating "amazing results from the first session" have anything special to warrant their price, or is it really just same old?
