Doctors may have missed what’s really causing pain and stiffness in your back. Don’t just live with the discomfort and cut back on your activities. Lower back pain (LBP) is one of the most common complaints in today’s society and is the main reason why adults younger than 45 years old experience discomfort. Debilitating back pain that continues for more than 3 months is considered chronic.
Lateral breathing techniques are beneficial for chronic pain, not just for relaxation, but for better body awareness and chronic pain management alongside CBT and other pain relief methods, such as TENS and Kinesiology Taping method.
