  • Cycling For Neck Aches and Back Pain: Tips for Prevention

    Biking is a great way to stay in shape and optimize cardiovascular performance. This popular exercise is especially attractive for individuals seeking an effective workout with lower impact than jogging or running.

    It’s a fact that indoor spinning classes have been on the rise for several years now.  According to Spynergy Consulting Services, indoor cycling classes are one of the top group exercises in North America and around the world. But whether you’re hitting the bike in a stylish fitness studio or out in nature, it’s important to be aware of the unwanted effects of cycling on the neck and lower back.

    During a recent survey of over 100 pro cyclist training camps, 45% (a vast majority) of individuals noted back pain specifically as a contributor to body wear & tear from cycling. In many cases, severe neck and back pain can inhibit individuals from engaging in physical activity altogether.

    Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of some helpful tips and recommendations to get you  back on the bike (and save your back!)

    • Make sure your bike is a good fit for you! Sitting on a bike that’e either too big or too small for a prolonged period of time can force your body into uncomfortable/unnatural positions, opening the gateway to chronic low back pain down the road. It’s important to select a bike that’s fitted as closely to your body proportions as possible.
    • Strengthen your core! A taut and toned core is a great by-product of regular cycling. However, beginners who may not be used to a rigorous abdominal workout tend to get fatigued more quickly, and are thereby more prone to back strain and even potential disc herniation. You can help to counteract this by doing some simple core exercises, 2-3 times a week, intermittently with cycling. As your core gets stronger, the risk of low back injury decreases.
    • Proper Positioning! How you’re seated on your bike is imperative to avoid neck and back pain. Your back should be arched, rather than in a forward leaning or “swaybacked” position, which, if you happen to ride over a few bumps, ultimately pushes your back even further forward, compressing the lumbar spine.
    • Stretch, Stretch, Stretch! Taking the time to stretch both before and after cycling (or any workout) is key to maintaining good flexibility and avoid stiffness/discomfort later.

     

    Posture Pump® products were designed to alleviate painful back and neck stiffness. The Posture Pump® Elliptical Back Rocker (Model 2000) is truly one of their most versatile products, as it fits under the back in four positions: lumbosacral, lumbar, thoracolumbar, and thoracic, to bring relief to specific problem areas.
    Additionally, the Posture Pump® Dual Disc Hydrator (Model 1400-D) is a terrific preventative tool against neck and upper back pain

    Final Thoughts: Verify your bike is the right fit, build up your core for improved endurance, arch your back & avoid leaning too far forward on your bike, and finally, prevent and/or relieve painful low back stiffness via regular stretching and incorporating Posture Pump® into your daily routine! Following these primary tips will help to make your next ride anything but a pain in the back!

  • What is Sciatica and What Can You Do About It?

    People who suffer from sciatica often complain about the persistent, chronic pain they suffer, and very often drugs do not provide the relief they need.  The presence of sciatica is an indication that the spine is not functioning as it should. But what exactly is sciatica and what can you do about it?

    What is Sciatica?
    Sciatica is chronic pain that affects the lower back and hip. It has its origin in the irritation and inflammation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is extremely long, as it extends from the lower back, hips, buttocks, and down the legs.

    The sharp pain associated with sciatica usually occurs because of a bulging disc.  The discs act as a protective covering to the bones of the spine. However, when these discs that are supposed to cushion the spine move out of position or slip, they can press on and irritate the nerve.

    Sciatica Treatments: Traditional treatments for sciatica include physiotherapy and steroid injections, and extreme cases require the surgical removal of the disc. However, before deciding what to do about sciatica, it is important to meet with your doctor to find out which treatment would be right for you or any other people suffering from sciatica.

    Posture Pump® PentaVec® Model 2500 is a very effective treatment for painful back stiffness. With your lower back gradually lifting with air and expanding into proper posture, use your feet to push up and out with the decompression pedal to gently stretch open and hydrate painful joints, compressed discs and irritated nerves. The PentaVec® rapidly gets to the cause of disc compression and allows you to carefully stretch out painful back stiffness at your own pace.

    Expanding Ellipsoidal Decompression (EED®) gently molds your lower spine into proper posture while nutrient rich fluid is drawn back into the discs as they expand (imbibition). The PentaVec® lifts and expands the lumbar spine while the sacrum and pelvis are rotated up and translated away.  The feeling is one of lightness and freedom from monotonous compressive coiling in the lower discs and joints. The PentaVec® delivers 5 simultaneous force vectors into the lower spine and cannot be manually duplicated.

    Posture Pump® shapes, decompresses, and hydrates compressed discs and joints in the cervical and lumbar spine. This is vital to maintaining good posture and to alleviate the symptoms caused by back conditions and provides relief for the root cause of back pain and stiffness!  Check out more details on our Back Pain Products and Neck Pain Products.

    Over 3 Million and Counting have utilized EED® Technology via Posture Pump®.  Nothing Works Like Posture Pump®.  Nothing!™

  • Loss of Neck Curve: The Source of Neck and Back Pain

    Wondering what the source of your mysterious neck and back pain might be?  It turns out that the curve in your neck might be causing those aches and pains – or rather, the loss of a healthy neck curve.The loss of a cervical curve – also known as cervical kyphosis – is a condition that’s caused by bad posture. Everyone should have a curve in their neck, as it helps keep the body balanced.  What’s more, this small curve helps the head stay balanced on top of the spine, thus preventing it from falling forward.  When a person slouches or juts their head too far forward, the curve is diminished. This can cause significant strain and pain for the neck muscles. In some severe causes, this can even cause paralysis.

    "Posture Pump Disc Hydrator During Medical Traction"

    When bad posture is maintained for too long, this leads to the development of cervical kyphosis. This condition describes the process that occurs when the neck curve begins to straighten. In some causes, the neck curve can actually reverse, causing significant spinal issues.

    How do you know if you have cervical kyphosis?  Take a look at the following symptoms:

    - Chronic neck pain

    - Headaches

    - Reduced range of motion in the neck

    - Weakness in the arms and legs

    - Loss of grip strength

    - Difficulty walking

    - Difficulty with bladder and bowels

    - From the side, your ear canal does not line up with your shoulder

    In extreme cases, paralysis from the neck down can occur. If you suspect you have cervical kyphosis, it’s important to make an appointment with a chiropractor. During this appointment, your chiropractor can take X-rays, go through a physical examination, and perform other tests to determine your diagnosis and, if necessary, your treatment options.

    That’s precisely where the Posture Pump® Dual Disc Hydrator® comes into play! Posture Pump® shapes and restores the cervical curve, which is vital to maintaining good posture. Posture Pump® is an online retailer that specializes in neck and back-related pain products.  Posture Pump® products are designed to decompress, shape, and lubricate the spine, which can help alleviate the symptoms caused by neck and back conditions. Posture Pump® shapes and restores the cervical curve, restores ranges of motion, and gets to the cause of neck and back pain stiffness fast!

  • What Affects Your Posture?

    Remember how your mother used to remind you to sit up straight?  It turns out, she wasn’t just reminding you of good manners; she was actually looking out for your posture.

    Poor Posture

    Since humans decided to stand on two feet, our posture has played an important role in the overall health of a person.  Posture provides a sound glimpse of both physical and emotional health issues that a person could be facing.  For example, if someone’s slumped over or has bad posture, you might be quick to assume that person lacks confidence or strength.  If a person stands up or sits up straight, you’re likely to think of that person as confident, capable, and friendly.

    We’re hardwired to look at a person’s posture for a quick assessment of his or her health.  As it turns out, we’re right to do so, as the positioning of each vertebrae in the spine is determined by a person’s skeletal alignment.  This alignment can be impacted by a number of health issues, and even by a person’s mental or emotional well-being.

     

    So what affects your posture – and what can you do to correct poor posture?

      - Your general spinal health can impact your posture. Spinal diseases can play a critical role in the alignment of your spine.  Spinal injuries can also throw off spinal alignment, leading to poor posture.

      - Biomechanical forces can, over long periods of time, impact your spinal health. For example, if you sit slouched over at work all day or you slump while you’re on the computer, it’s likely that your spine is becoming misshapen due to repeated and exaggerated positioning.

      - The strength and flexibility of the muscles surrounding the spine can also play a role on spinal alignment. The stronger those back muscles are, the more easy it is to ensure proper posture.

      - Other ways your posture can be impacted include injury, sleeping patterns, and other health conditions.

  • How Tech Neck/Texting Neck Affects Your Spine

    woman textingTexting: It’s just a harmless, fun, and fast way to stay in touch with friends and family.  You get so many texts on a daily basis, you hardly think twice when you bend your head over your smartphone, furiously typing your answer back.
    But did you know that this seemingly innocuous habit could be one of the biggest causes of your neck and back pain?
    According to an article published in Surgical Technology International, the average person juts their head forward between 15 to 60 degrees to read and respond to texts on a phone.  The amount of force exerted on the neck is surprising: if you bend your head down by 15 degrees, you’re putting 27 pounds of pressure on your neck.  At the opposite end of the spectrum, you’re placing a whopping 60 pounds of pressure on your neck if you’re bending your head by sixty degrees.
    To put that in perspective, that’s the average weight of an eight-year-old.  And if you’re texting non-stop – well, you might as well just give piggyback rides at the playground.
    Think you don’t text much?  Think again: The average American spends about an hour on their smartphones each day.  Whether it’s texting friends or reading an article on the train to work, this constant activity can add up to serious neck and back pain.

    So how can you reduce the amount of pressure you exert on your neck?

    • Limit the amount of time you spend on your smartphone. Designate certain times of the day for responding to texts.  Minimize these times as much as possible, as this can help reduce the amount of pressure on your neck.
    • Hold your phone up more toward your face. If you hold it at eye level, you can reduce the amount of pressure on your neck.
    • Strengthen your back and neck muscles. Get 30 minutes of cardio activity each day, followed by light strength training.
