Got Fibromyalgia ????
If you answered yes, it probably means you require some exercise for lower back pain. It probably hurts when you are sitting, standing, walking or lying down.
Some people say their pain feels like a "deep, sharp, aching" which sometimes shoots down to their legs.
Are you happy with your job?? New research cites a lack of control and dissatisfaction with ones job as being a factor resulting in chronic back pain.
The good news is, your back pain is curable. With some exercise and minor changes in the way you move, it can be corrected.
Chronic back pain is heavily diagnosed in fibromyalgia sufferers and is often caused by some form of strain or injury.
It is important to stay active and to not let fear keep you from moving. Remember if you have become inactive, you will lose your flexibility and strength which will leave you vulnerable to more pain.
Exercises for fibromyalgia are key to helping you become active and limber.
Sometimes it is the muscles surrounding your lower back that are the real culprits. That is why exercise is important.
If your stomach is weak, you are probably going to have some back pain. The same is true if your legs are weak.
Think of it this way, every muscle in your body supports another muscle. If one muscle is weaker than the other, it will have to work twice as hard.
Your stomach, legs, and lower back should all be supporting each other.
When you are lifting something or exercising,
Always lift with your legs keeping your back strait.
Never roll your back when lifting.
I am guilty of this myself from time to time. It's an easy mistake to make and one that can be very costly.
When I meet with a client I study their posture.
Are they slouching, are their shoulders rolled forward. All this is very important.
You may be 65 years old and have been suffering from fibromyalgia for some time now. It doesn't matter. Pick up your head, straiten out your shoulders and walk tall.
Not only will it boost your confidence, but it will align your body correctly. Sometimes a minor change in our posture is all that is needed to relieve the pain.
1. Go to a wall and place your back against it.
2. Now press your calves (the muscles above your ankles), your butt, your shoulders, and your head back against the wall.
3. Squeeze your stomach tight as if someone was going to punch you in the gut.
4. That's it! Perfect Posture.
Remember to do this every morning and to remind yourself throughout the day to stand strait. (Guess Mom was right).
Your posture is the most important thing to get right.
Exercise for lower back pain must include the Stomach & Legs.
Planks for stomach.
Body weight squats or lunges for legs.
Knees to chest for lower back stretches.; lay on your back and grab both knees pulling them to your chest and holding that position for 15 to 30 seconds).
There are many exercises for fibromyalgia you can do. If you suffer from chronic back pain there are a few you should avoid.

Lifting weights above your shoulders.
The above mentioned exercises put too much stress on that area.
