Prolonged sitting increases the risk for degeneration of the lumbar intervertebral discs. Prevent lower back pain with regular stretching exercises.
Low back pain is frequently brought on by simply sitting too often and for too long at a time. In fact, it takes just an hour of sitting for lumbar spine stiffness to become problematic. Prolonged sitting increases the risk for degeneration and herniation of the lumbar intervertebral discs. Just imagine the effects of a long car or plane trip on an aging lower back!
This stiffness has serious repercussions, slowing down the supply of fluids and collagen to the lumbar spine, which leads to a hardening of the discs, tendons and ligaments. The compression and lack of mobility also leads to inflammation and pain.
Fortunately, the pain-relieving, decompressing Pelvic Clock® workout aids in both, preventing and managing, back pain – right in the comfort of your own home or office.
The Pelvic Clock workout helps to:
- Quickly decompress the lumbar spine
- Shunt nourishing fluid through intervertebral discs
- Relieve pressure on the nerve roots
- Correct excessive pelvic tilt
- Promote a neutral spine position
