Back pain works on the principle of an interplay between so-called "agonists" and "antagonists".
Chronic incorrect loading or acute overloading leads to a situation in which some movements place excessive demands on "agonists" or "antagonists". This leads to muscular tension and pain. If muscles are pushed to the limit, they can block the related joint. This phenomenon is often referred to as "lumbago".
How to relieve back pain?
Back pain has many causes: sitting for too long at work, loading the back incorrectly and, above all, too little physical exercise. In fact, regular exercise and sports are often the first steps in relieving back pain, as a carefully strengthened muscular apparatus can both support and relieve the spinal column in the long run.
The body becomes more limber as ligaments and muscles get stronger and more resilient. If pain hinders the recommended physical activity, back supports can help stabilize the lumbar region and reduce pain.
