Have you ever seen anyone wearing a back brace...similar to the image above? Such devices provide support to the spine. These devices help to heal a back injury and provide support in a preventive way. You can purchase such a device at many medical supply stores and pharmacies.
What if you could achieve the same kind of support using your own muscle tissue? There are many advantages to this:
1) You never have to worry over whether or not the fit is correct.
2) You don't have to put it on or take it off.
3) It works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
4) It's 100% natural.
5) Your body shape will change in appearance...for the better! Looking better helps one to feel
If this sounds good to you...I have good news for you. It is possible to achieve this goal! I wrote a post about this concept (known as core training) last year, if you are interested click here to read more. There is a brief description of core training and also there are a couple of outside references for more information.
After that post, I came across a book review...the book is titled "The End of Back Pain" written by Patrick Roth, MD. In his book he describes a mind-body method for back pain, including core training. His method is a bit different from the resources that I had provided earlier. There are numerous positive reviews from readers, and it's currently enjoying decent rankings in Amazon bestseller categories. If you suffer from chronic back pain, it might be a good option for you. Dr. Roth's technique involves mental and physical approaches to the problem and requires only a very little equipment.
