Friends, we are starting very important series of articles about training with a bad back.
Is there life in pole dancing with hernias, protrusion, osteochondrosis?
Svetlana Shiryaeva, our teacher, who faced the problem personally and successfully overcomes it without stopping the training, prepared for us series of articles and videos with exercises that we will soon share with you.
Today will give you theory.
- As a person, who has gone from “I quit top-class sports” to “Rainbow is in my pocket”, I can say that everything is possible.
A couple of years ago, back pain was my constant companion, and once during the preparation for the competition I got stuck.
I could do absolutely nothing, it was painful to walk and sneeze.
What to do?
First of all, we need to remove inflammation by anti-inflammatory drugs that should be prescribed by a doctor and give yourself rest.
When inflammation is over we start actively to restore the working capacity: pilates and yoga exercises will be our salvation.
Doing this kind of sport, we simply don’t have the right not to strengthen back muscles and ligaments.
The main thing that we must understand is that for rehabilitation or just a healthy back there is only one way to do i.e. to “stretch and strengthen”.
That is, first we release the compression of the spine, and then strengthen the back with exercises.
I recommend (try and choose yourself) to find your individual exercises for each day, after which you will feel the lightness in the back, and run it regularly to prevent the pain (and not when the pain is already here).
It can take from 10 minutes in a short version, which can be used as a warm-up, and an hour in full version.
I produced a number of videos with a set of exercises thanks to which I live and train
without pain; we will post them in the coming days.
- In addition to this, a significant role plays amount of water you drink: drink at least 2 liters of clean water per day.
Visit regularly a good osteopath, chiropractic or massage therapist.
Wish you all health and flexible strong backs, to be continued.
