Which Yoga Poses Can Help Get Rid of Chronic Lower Back Pain?
Chronic lower back pain is a serious issue, which can affect the entire body. A person suffering from chronic lower back pain is going to have difficulties in doing normal day-to-day tasks, let alone arduous tasks.
Perpetual pain is the one that causes irritation, imbalances, deviations and dysfunctional movement in the body. While there are a plenty of chronic lower back pain treatments available today, one should start with practicing yoga as it is particularly designed to help bring the body into its proper shape and restore the balance in an ideal way. Not to forget, yoga also helps alleviate the pain. People suffering from continuous shooting pain should begin gently, as performing harsh yoga positions can inflict more pain. Tight hamstrings, back muscles, and short hip flexors will relax down, bringing a lot of relief to the body. Here are the four yoga positions that one can try to alleviate the chronic lower back pain.
1. The box on the wall: This yoga position is said so because you place your hands on the wall at about your hip height. The distance between both the hands should be just about the length from your one shoulder to another. Once you are in this position, move back until your heels get under the sitting bones. Now, you have to push your hands, particularly the index finger knuckles. Keep your legs as much straight as possible and start up with quads along with lifting your sitting bones. You have to be in a position where the natural curve of your lower spine begins to appear. Straightening your legs and keep the sitting bones lifted is going to be a difficult thing to do, so what you can do is, you can slightly bend your knees. Your hamstrings are going to be stretched in this pose, plus your lower back mobility will also improve as your pelvis is going to be tilted.
2. Supta Padangustasana: Don’t bother much about learning the name of this yoga pose, and instead, try on performing this pose. This is a great pose for relaxing your tight hamstrings. You can use a yoga belt and lie down on the floor. Place yoga belt around the bottom of one of your feet and extend the same leg. You have to bring that leg perpendicular to the floor. Now, extend another leg to the floor and move just one leg closer to the chest. But, keep your leg as much straight as possible. You have to stretch your hamstrings, as only then, your hamstring will come into a relaxed state. You have to create a nagging pain in the affected part of the body.
3. Bridge Pose: The Sanskrit name for this pose is Setu Bandha Sarvangasana, and in order to do it, you have to lie on your back and bend your knees in such a way that your heels come close to your sitting bones. Now, you’ve to push the feet into the floor in order to lift the hips at an enough height where you can easily fit in a block. Keep your feet apart as much as the width of your hip and keep your knees in line with the feet. This yoga position is going to stretch your chest, quadriceps and hip flexors, which are the parts responsible for your lower back pain.
4. Side Twist: The Sanskrit name for this pose is Ardha Matsyendrasana, and with this yoga pose, you can bring relief to your entire spine. For this, you need to sit on the floor and bend your right knee. Now, cross the right foot and bring it over the left leg’s knee. Take your right hand behind you and cross the left arm over right knee in order to twist to the right side. Now, you have to inhale and lift your chest with every time you inhale, as it will extend your spine. When you exhale, you need to twist a bit more. With this yoga pose, the space between your vertebrae is going to widen up and due to this, the pressure from your lower back will reduce. Your body becomes more active and flexible.
