Back Pain Free with Driving Yoga Part 4
When getting out of bed, don’t even dare trying quick movements. Instead, you should slowly edge your way to the side of the bed and then push yourself up with your arms. That way you don’t use your back muscles as much.
Yoga exercises will help you improve your lung capacity, deepen your connection with gravity, and lengthen your spine. You will learn to harness gravity as a positive contributor to functional movement.
You will open the breathing apparatus and give the nervous system and adrenal glands that contribute to stress and the fight or flight response a break and access the parasympathetic nervous system, so that important tasks such as digestion and improved immune function can take place.
By lengthening the spine you will improve your posture and alignment throughout the body for greater ease and less muscular tension.
“Regular exposure to whole-body vibration over many months or years can lead to damage and back pain.

Pain occ urs when the extrusion comes into contact with a nerve.

Research in just the last ten years, based on new imaging techniques has shown, revealing a new model of spinal health that is not straight or rigid, but flexible, plastic and curved. Additionally, modern sedentary lifestyles, long hours driving or in front of the computer, severely compromise posture, the source of pain and discomfort.
