Back Pain ‘Cure': Back Pain Reduction with Stretches for Back Muscles

A lot of my success in working with golfers, athletes – and “everyday, regular people” is directly related to the emphasis I place on proper stretching exercise programs – as part of an overall fitness regimen.

So often, whether through a one-on-one training experience with me – or by the use of my Optimum Flexibility DVDs – my clients make statements such as… “I’ve had these pains for years – and now they’re gone!” …or, “This is like a miracle, I’ve tried everything you can imagine – but nothing worked. A few weeks after doing your stretches, I’m like a new person.”

Well, truth be told – this is no miracle, although I won’t argue with the people who claim they’ve had a miraculous experience. I know what it’s like to live with back pain, as I have overcome my own back ailments which resulted from a highway car accident in 1995.

I stretch just about every day – usually at night when the house is quiet and everyone is asleep. I take out my mat, lay it on the ground and go through my full body stretching routine. Then I get up – sit on my 55cm ball, lay all the way back – and then go through a series of stretches on the exercise ball.

This simple routine is what I attribute my own back pain cure to.

But it does much more than that…

It can boost your energy if you do it in the morning.

It can relax you in the evening if you do it right before bed (and you sleep better).

And it makes the rest of your life more enjoyable and ‘livable’ – as you can ‘perform’ better – and be pain free.

The only thing I regret is that I didn’t start stretching until I reached my early 30’s. But – as I always say… “As long as you are still alive – it’s never too late to start.”

Your trainer for life – your trainer forever,
