Lumbar pain - Backpain - backache

Brussels - Hal - Buizingen - Belgium

Back pain can limit you in your working life. That pain can have physical or psychological origin, because one tends to put everything there.

The pressures should not be too light or too strong, the goal is not to make the situation worse. I am going on some points or areas to be massaged which will allow you to release some of these tensions. Pressure will be applied mainly on the meridian of the bladder. We go from the 7th cervical vertebra and down to the sacrum, then we go back, we will exert pressure on the paravertebral muscles that are right next to the spine. We go back again to go down again, but there we will be 1.5 finger of the spine. To go up one last time, but there, we will go down to 3 fingers of the spine.

To recognize the 7th cervical it's quite easy, put your fingers at the base of the neck. Ask the person to rotate their head. You will then feel a moving vertebra (C7) and a bottom that does not move is D1 or T1 (dorsal vertebra 1 or thoracic 1).

In case of Lumbago think about stretching the psoas.

Do not rush, take your time.

Some points to calm the pain

Then, down to the poplitealcavity behind the knee, in the center of this fold is a very important point for lower back pain or lumbago. VE 40 also called "trade of the medium", exert pressure. But beware it is a very very sensitive area, if you press too hard, it may be painful and it is not necessary to seek a pain for it to be effective.

Then to finish VE 60 also called "Mon Kun Lun", it is located on the external part of the ankle halfway between the malleolus and Achilles tendon.


Some anatomy

Our spine is composed of 33 or 34 vertebrae according to the people.

7 cervical vertebrae (C1 to C7) form the cervical spine.

12 thoracic or dorsal vertebrae (D1 to D12 or T1 to T12).

5 lumbar vertebrae (L1 to L5) form the lumbar spine or more commonly the lower back.

5 sacred vertebrae (S1 to S5), in adulthood, they are welded and form the sacrum.

4 or 5 coccygeal vertebrae which welded together form the coccyx.

To recognize the 7th cervical is quite easy, put your fingers at the base of the neck. Ask the person to rotate their head. You will then feel a moving vertebra (C7) and a bottom that does not move is D1 or T1 (dorsal 1 or thoracic 1).

colonne vertébrale

Trapeze muscle covers our shoulders, neck and upper back.. It forms a diamond. Many tensions are lodged in this muscle, which is why it is important to have a regular massage.

The paravertebral muscles are a series of muscles that support the spine and allow it complex movements such as rotations. They lodge in or near the gutter of the vertebrae. If you do not watch over them, then over time will settle a contracture, which will be embarrassing to see painful.

The psoas (it is part of the pelvic muscles) is attached to vertebrae D12, L1, L2, L3, L4, L5 to finish on the internal trochanter (bone prominence on the upper part of the femur). Because of its location, it is an important muscle for the entire lower back, because if you do not take care of it, it can be the cause of severe lower back pain.

Our back is important, we have only one for our whole life, we must take care of it.
