I normally recover from lower back pain just going to run. It results from studying too much and sitting - skipping gym and sport during exam weeks.
It alleviates normally after one hour running. This time however I tried to alleviate it in interval running (2 x 15 min) and see try again tomorrow (15 min x 2) and see during 3rd day how is the pain. Very cold water (for whole body, about 30-45 seconds) in Spa centers (colder than from tab) also causes very good burning sensation there in the lower back region. Repeating it, shows that the pain sensation gets weaker. After this the pain also disappears.
In summary methods of alleviating lower back pain
- 1-1.5h hour running (usually requires longer time to relieve)
- interval running during three days (2 x 15 min, 2nd day 2 x 15 min, 3rd day 2 x 15 min)
- very cold water to alleviate it (30-45 seconds for whole body)
I have not found any stretching technique how to alleviate the lower back pain or to increase the blood circulation there.
How can you stretch the lower back?
I would like to understand better what is causing the lower back pain to plan better recovery and prevention programs from such pains.
What is the mechanism causing the lower back pain?
What is a good way of alleviating the lower back pain?
