Do you experience back pain when leaning forward?

Back pain if you have severe pain when bending or leaning forward the most likely cause is a disc herniation. If leaning back relieves the pain then try to adopt postures where the spine is in extension such as leaning back or lying on your front. 

Chiropractic care can provide pain relief and speed up recover but their is a few things you can be doing in between treatments or as standalone therapy. The most important thing would be to learn to perform a proper hip hinge (this would need a coach but there is plenty of videos out there to get you started). The second thing would be to start performing Dr Stuart McGills big three exercises (bird dog, curl up and side plank). Always consult a professional before undertaking a exercise regime. If you have any questions or need a consultation feel free to get in contact.

Thanks for reading
