About 60% of every human-being consists of water. Thus, our skeleton floats in the water of our bodies. Bones are just our coat hangers. Attached to muscles, they will go where they put them, and thus if a muscle or tendon below the ribs, or between shoulder blades (if you spend too much time on your computer) or just above the right or left hip, or indeed anywhere in the back are in spasm through injury or overwork, then the underlying fibres will shrink, causing the muscle to pull the skeleton out of line.
Back Pain Knowledge is completely different concept where the focus is on Gentle Exercise. This will, with diligence, reduce the muscle spasm (which causes the tightness) and in time, with continued exercise (that takes a just a few minutes of your day) cut down the risk of recurrence. So, please refer to our [Exercises] section on the website where these uncomplicated and undemanding exercises are explained in detail. To help in easier movement of the exercises, by softening the skin and underlying muscle fibres, we suggest an application of our Back Pain Knowledge lotion 20 minutes before exercising. But, as you will see from what we have to offer, some of our intelligent, yet simple exercises are done on your back, in bed, where the risk of further damage to already irritated muscles is low. PRECAUTION: Of course with any exercise, it is always best if you have any doubt to ask your doctor / GP for advice before commencing, and especially so if your symptoms persist or worsen. How to use the lotion: Apply prior to exercising. Do not apply near eyes or on mucus membranes. It you have any doubt about allergy, then patch test first by applying a drop or two of lotion to the inside crease of the elbow and leave for 2 hours to assess. Not suitable for children. And of Course: Please read our article about drinking water – that is so important in the relief of muscle spasm and back pain.
