All it takes for spinal adjustment is acupressure, or feet relaxation. Check out why and what you need to do!
Acupressure is actually pressure acupuncture, which is a Chinese treatment promoting wellness and relaxation. Most popular acupressure bodywork therapies are tuina and medical qigong.
Actually, Chinese medicine believes that each body has acupressure points which lie along channels in the body. A vital energy goes through these channels connecting with a network of organs and creating a system through the body. When you press one of these acupressure points, you communicate with the brain, and the brain connects to the specific organ that causes pain.
Additionally, this acupressure will help you to treat the pain all over your body, but it’s especially effective in treating lower back pain. So, let’s see how this spinal adjustment works and which are the exercises that will help you alleviate your pain.
Spinal adjustment with these 5 exercises
Toe pencil pickups
Place a pencil on you floor and try lifting it with your toes. Once you lift it, hold that position for 10 seconds and release. Repeat it 5 times. Do the same thing with the other foot.
Flexion that is resisted
This exercise is the best balance solution. It tightens your muscles and protects you from injuries. Just sit on the floor straightening your feet in front of you. Now, wrap some kind of band around the bed on one side, and on the other, place the band on top of the feet. Lean backward. Your foot should be bent backward, and you should hold for 5 seconds. Do the same thing 10 times.
First of all, do a proper warm up; especially leg warm up. Stand up, and then bend your knees gripping the floor with your toes. Stay in that position for 3 seconds and repeat 10 times. Do this 3 times a day.
For this one, lie on your back. Extend the left leg over your head, start rotating it clockwise. Do the same thing for 10 seconds, and then repeat with the right leg.
Walking on your toes is also very effective for strengthening your muscles and your ligaments. Just go up on your tiptoes and start moving forward for 20 seconds. Rest for 15 seconds then repeat the exercise again. Do this 5 times, not forgetting to rest 15 seconds in between. The set should be repeated at least twice a day.
