The ailment of the century is the consequence of the invention of television and the computer! 😄
Causes of back pain
Back pains are common, especially in modern humans who spend many hours in a seated position.
There are a combination of causes:
- Lack of physical activity.
- Emotional wounds.
- Muscular or joint tension.
- Incorrect posture.
- Weakness of some muscles.
- Injury, accident or illness.
Natural and long-lasting remedies
Yes, it is possible to get rid of back pain for good!
The back needs movement to stay flexible.
Human beings are designed to be active, otherwise the body can’t function at its best.
At least 30 minutes of physical activity (such as walking) a day is recommended.
Whenever my back hurts, it’s because I’ve been sitting too long in front of my computer (writing posts like this one, for example!) So I start walking, swimming or doing yoga again, and the pain goes away. Of course, I also listen to my body’s messages.
Behind every back pain, there’s at least one emotional wound.
I find out what to do about my emotions.
Symbolism can help:
- My back hurts because I carry a lot of responsibility: I’m putting unnecessary strain on myself.
- I’m afraid I won’t make it.
- The pain in my back reveals what I’m imposing on myself that doesn’t suit me.
- I’m experiencing an imbalance: I refuse to “bend my back”, to submit.
Spines needs stretching.
Sportsmen and women, especially those who strengthen their upper body muscles, can suffer from pain.
There’s an excellent stretch for the whole spine:
- Lie on the floor on my back.
- Place a rolled bath towel under the curve of my lower back.
- Stretch my arms upwards on the floor. I take care not to force if I feel a stretch.
- Hold position for a few minutes.
- Back in a standing position, hang by my arms from a bar for a few seconds.
Strengthen core muscles
The core muscles that support the spine are frequently underdeveloped.
Some practices, such as Pilates, focus on strengthening these muscles.
The result is a lasting reduction in pain.
There are professionals, usually physiotherapists, who specialize in postural restoration.
This enables me to correct the deformities in my spine in a lasting way.
A muscle contracture is a sore spot where a muscle has contracted.
There are often sore spots on the back.
To unblock the muscle, it’s advisable to press on the pain for 20 seconds, then leave it alone for at least 2 days.
Or I can get a massage from a professional, such as a physiotherapist.
A contracture is almost always linked to an emotional wound, which I can explore at the same time.
To regain a well-functioning back, a gentle spinal detox is helpful.
It allows me to cleanse myself physically, emotionally and energetically.

Fortunately, there are natural and lasting remedies.
The key is to combine emotional exploration with physical exercise.
