Breathe in. Breathe out. It’s pretty simple isn’t it? On average, a person will breathe 12 breaths each minute, totaling 17,000 breaths per day. It’s a function that is second nature, and we don’t even think about it. Now, place one hand on your chest and one hand on your belly. Which hand moves when you breathe in? Does your chest rise with each breath? Or, do you feel like your chest and shoulders are relatively quiet and your belly expands?
Low back pain is a common phenomenon in the world. It’s a condition that can be a constant complaint to some people, and an episodic annoyance to others with no definite solution in sight. But, a lot of times those who deal with low back pain on a regular basis, resign themselves to the pain and the inconvenience, feeling that even if they win the battle against one flair-up, another incident is just around the corner. So why fight it? Why not just surrender?
