Back pain is a problem that a lot of us face today. Especially that nagging pain in the lower back is like a good-old-friend who nobody likes to mingle with!
The minute you tell anyone about that pain, they’ll come up with a list of advice. Massage therapy, pain killers or exercises are a few of them. No one can deny that maybe these medications help you in the long term, however, when you are cringing with that pain- you’re mostly just looking at quick solutions rather than taking those medications or treatments for months.
When such is the case, here are 2 super quick and fool-proof fix-Acupressure:
- Feet: Sit in a position comfortably and press your feet gently with your hands. The acupressure point is right at the confluence of the first two toes. Try to alternate pressures from low to high intensities and keep rotating your pressure in clockwise and anti-clockwise position. Continue doing the same for about a minute. Repeat this 3 times and you’ll instantly feel better.
- Lower spine: One of the most natural responses to lower back pain is to press the lowermost point of your spine. In medical terms, its called as the second and third lumbar vertebrae. That is also the precise acupressure point through which you’ll get instant relief. Press the point lightly to get rid of this nagging lower back pain in no time. Make this a part of your routine to keep the pain at bay.
- Knee cap: Another point that will give you quick relief is right behind your knee cap. Apply pressure to this point for about two minutes and alternate the pressure intensities. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you will be relieved!
