Have you ever lifted a heavy object with your back rather than your legs or reached for an object in the wrong way and hurt your back? Chances are you probably have and you’re not alone.
According to the United States National Institutes of Health (NIH), as many as 8 in 10 people will experience some form of back pain within their lifetime.
Additionally, in the United States more than 26 million men and women aged between 20-64 experience frequent back pain and it is also the leading cause of disability among Americans aged 45 and younger.
Often times back pain can be over diagnosed or even misdiagnosed. Due to the frequency of back pain a simple search would find several sites with home remedies for back pain. In the past, rest had often been recommended for back pain, however, more and more specialists are recommending light exercise and activity.
While it is important to visit the doctor for frequent and chronic back pain sometimes a couple simple exercises can help ease back pain. According to founder and owner of GB Personal training, the following are some easy, low impact exercises that are known to reduce back pain:
- Yoga Squats
- Partial Crunches
- High Step
- Deep Lunges
- Forward Leg swings
- Hamstring Stretches
- Wall Sits
- Decompression breathing
Another easy way to reduce and/or prevent back pain and reduce the costs associated with back pain is to use SmartCells anti-fatigue mats, flooring, runners, or insoles.
SmartCells anti-fatigue products are ergonomically designed and engineered to prevent and reduce pain, including back pain, associated with standing for extended periods of time. The unique SmartCells act like springs that cushion as weight is applied and then rebound when the weight shifts, which returns energy and reduces fatigue.
SATECH’s anti-fatigue products are built with industrial quality and combine features such as beveled edges and stability with style and elegance that blends perfectly in any room in the house. The SmartCells line anti-fatigue rubber mats come with an industry-leading 8-year warranty and are available in three different surface options (smooth, basket weave and carpet top) as well as three colors (Black, gray and light brown) and three sizes (2X3, 3X5 and 24X68).
