    Default Exercise For Low Back Pain Beneficial But Nobody Agrees OnWhy

    University of New South Wales
    December 17 2020

    Exercise is scientifically proven to provide relief from chronic low back pain (CLBP), but a new UNSW Sydney systematic review shows researchers are still unsure as to why it's beneficial.
    The study, published in Musculoskeletal Science and Practice recently, was a collaboration between researchers from UNSW Medicine and NeuRA (Neuroscience Research Australia), led by Professor James McAuley.
    Their aim was to better understand why back pain researchers think exercise helps people with CLBP.

    A couple weeks ago, I commented about my 3-4 week old debilitating lower back problem (lumbago) in HH https://www.hawkeshealth.net/communi...ght=lower+back Reply #7.

    At the time, I was (and still am) concerned of the possibility, at my advanced mid 70s age, of the lumbago lasting forever, a scary thought. But the CAUTIOUS good news is that this past week I have been making good progress with the lumbago, with roller coasting symptoms, but overall, slowly diminishing.

    But if I make a wrong move, the lumbago can become re-aggravated, but at least that seems to subside quickly, so I guess I must be doing something right to help alleviate that miserable lower back problem. And making back related wrong moves is always problematic, but as one gets older, it can become even more of a common problem.

    All that I did to help treat or "cure" the lumbago was to make sure to lie flat on my back in bed at night and avoid sleeping in the fetal position, a bit of a challenge for me. At first a heating pad was used, but after a while discontinued, as the flat back position seemed to generate enough of it's own natural body warmth. The other thing I did was to occasionally "march" while laying flat on my back for therapeutic exercise. And I also started to realize that getting back outdoors to do a lot of walking was beneficial as well.

    So the bottom line, I believe, has been good blood circulation from not only simple exercise, but good diet practices and hydration to help promote good HEALING blood circulation with thinner blood VISCOSITY, without taking any blood thinning statins, or other big pharma "remedies", which BTW, further allows me to donate blood, (see below link).

    I have donated a lot of blood in the past 4 years for a few other reasons, and take natural aspirin white willow bark (as well as many other beneficial natural supps) to help maintain clean and thinner blood VISCOSITY, which I believe is helpful for my lower back healing.

    Holy moly, I plum forgot to mention above, "massage therapy". Rather than run out nilly willy seeking a professional licensed massage therapist, (and I do have Medicare Ins.), I decided to try self help massaging my own lower back while simply lying flat on my back, (as I mentioned in the above post), and without rubbing friction, simply and gently massaging the lower back, back 'n forth right to left, only about an inch or two against the mattress.

    I truly believe my DIY massage therapy has been a big help, as I did not try that message therapy until weeks later during my lower back pain event, and I finally started getting some good results, along with the other above described self help lower back therapies.
