I don't post much anymore about
loosening your body like I used to.
Anyone with ridged body pain needs to understand trigger point and fascia release. You can google this.
Anyway, the title of this post can surprise people who dont know this stuff. After all, Drs dont know it.
101: Your skin does not hold you together, fascia does. Its a white tissue netting that runs just under your skin, through muscle and around some organs. It tightens up as a safety mechanism, and then doesn't always relax.
We hold tension in our neck/shoulders .....and abs! The Psoas muscles are in you abb area also holding upper front hips to the lower spine. When this and abb fascia gets tight.......your back is over balancing (tig of war) and gets sore. What to do? release your abbs and usually some back pain improves.
1)Relax belly down on a soft 4" diameter ball carefully. It takes 3-10 minutes for this area tension to "melt". Move around as it releases, careful of organs, let them slowly move- they will.
2)In the shower standing up. Slouched/bend over a little and deeply massage gut area top down with a lathered hand palm or fist. Repeat and feel back pain melt.
Is this noticeable? yes
You have multiple sources of pain going on, this helps some of it. Strengthening you back will eventually improve back pain too.
Note: Just killing the bugs does not guarantee all you pain will go away , unless you had acute lyme (prob not here then though). The longer you have it, the more "shot" your muscles become.
