Lower Back and Hip Pain Relief

Back and Hip Pain can be excruciating not only for the sufferer, but for the people close to him/her. Partners of people who have these pains tell of random shrieking screams that come from them even when they do something simple like bend over to pick up that toy truck your son was playing with. The truth is, at this stage, there really isn’t any cure for back pain. Professionals tell parents to make sure their kids get in the good habit of having a good posture… but if you’ve already lived your childhood and have turned into an adult with back pain, they don’t really have any answers for you.

There are exercises that definitely help relieve the pain. Back sufferers will notice that if they get lazy and stop doing their exercises, their pain will get worse. Doing the right exercises correctly is essential to the ongoing improvement of your back and hip pain. Doing these exercises incorrectly can actually lead to your pain getting worse, so make sure you know what you’re doing is advised.

Fake Push Ups

One popular exercise to assist in relieving lower back and hip pain are those fake push ups you sometimes see people doing. While a normal push up will increase strength in your biceps these push ups focus on your back and not your arms. Whatever you do do not do a normal push up because that will put strain on your back and you’ll be paying for it for a few days.

To do a Fake Push up:

1. Lie down on your stomach with your hands firmly planted on the floor.

2. Push your torso up with your hands but keep your legs flat on the ground and stretch your lower back. Hold for 10 seconds.

3. Lower your torso and repeat 15-20 times.

Leg Swipes

It may sound like a break dancing move but it does work. This one more targets the hip but also does cut down on lower back pain.

To to a Leg Swipe:

1. Lie down on your back with your knees bent as if you were about to do a sit up.

2. Simply slowly move your legs to the left and right 30-40 times or until you start feeling tired.
