Too Much Stretching Can Cause Low Back Pain

Too Much Stretching Can Cause Low Back Pain

In many cases, people perform stretching procedures in order to overcome back pain, but Little do they realize that too much stretching can actually cause back pain. If you stretch too much you can develop what is known as syndrome flexibility. This means that often develops joint movement and as a result becomes unstable.

I see quite a number of these cases every year, and many times the patient is fully aware that stretch them the cause of the problem. In fact, many of the patients in an attempt to stretch more in order to relieve the pain. What they are doing is actually making the problem worse. In many cases they have difficulty in accepting that stretch contributes to pain because they feel that their muscles again tight.

One that develops in the joint often instability is the sacroiliac joint. At the base of the spine is the triangular bone called the deficit. A joint deficit with part of the pelvic bone called today. You have all of the right and left sacroiliac joints. There are a number of ligaments that hold the joint together. When ligaments become overloaded joint becomes unstable.

The sacroiliac joint is unstable can produce pain and tightness in the muscle. Muscles work to overcome the joint before they become unstable tighter. They try to stabilize the joint loose. Many people believe that these tight muscles should be extended so that it can continue to stretch or even worse stretch more than that.

I have seen these syndromes in the development of people who are very flexible, such as dancers and those who practice yoga. In many cases, people who are flexible to begin with the assumption of stretching which creates a problem of instability.

And displays the sacroiliac instability and low back pain on the right side or the left usually below the belt line. Sometimes the pain can radiate to the buttocks and thigh or the back of the thigh. There are deep muscle in the buttock region called the piriformis muscle, which also can be involved. This muscle works to stabilize the sacroiliac joint loose and become tight and painful. In some cases, the piriformis muscle can affect the sciatic nerve, which runs down the back of the leg. It is important to remember that the tight muscles are the body's way of stability of the joint.

One test for sacroiliac instability is lying flat on your back and lift the left and right legs one at a time. Positive test is when the pain is worse with either a leg lift or one leg feels weaker than the other when lifted.

Treatment for sacroiliac instability is to avoid the first stretch ligaments and creating more damage. Can physical therapy modalities such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation of the muscles and ice also helps. A licensed health care providers such as a chiropractor or physiotherapist also describes the stability exercises similar to those found in Pilates routine. In some cases, called sacroiliac support belt also support trochanterica can also help to support the joint. This belt is worn around the widest part of your hips. In many cases, belt provides some immediate relief from the pain.
