You suffer from backache? From Japan comes an original method to get rid of this annoying problem in a few minutes. Let's find out what it is.
Back pain is a symptom that can appear and originate from various causes. What is certain is that it is something very annoying and that in some cases it can even become disabling.
We have talked to you several times about how to deal with the problem with natural remedies for back pain which can be plants and herbs to be taken by mouth, spread in the form of creams, ointments or ointments doing a nice massage on the painful areas, using salt. hot or experimenting with specific exercises and practicing yoga.
Today we present the method devised by medico giapponese Toshiki Fukutsudzi who has studied a very simple exercise that you can do even for just 5 minutes every day to treat back pain and improve your posture.
This is not only a fast method but also an economical one as what you need is a simple towel and ribbons and you can do it comfortably at home when you have a moment of calm.
How to do the Fukutsudzi exercise
The exercise designed by Fukutsudzi works on posture, strengthens the abdominal muscles and therefore reduces back pain. But how is it practiced?
- 1) First you need to roll up the towel and tie it with the help of some ribbons along its entire length.
- 2) It is then necessary to lie down on a solid and flat surface, taking care to place the towel on the lower part of the back in correspondence with the area where the navel is located anteriorly.
- 3) Extend your legs keeping them open so that they are aligned with your shoulders. The toes must be placed inwards and must touch each other.
- 4) The arms are instead long above the head and the palms are facing the floor. In this case it is the little fingers that must touch each other.
- 5) Remain in this position for 5 minutes so that the muscles and the spine can stretch.
- 6) Once the necessary time has elapsed, turn on your side, remove the towel from under your back and get up slowly.
In this video you can see how to best practice the exercise that can be repeated 3 times a day for at least 2 weeks.
The Japanese doctor is also convinced that this exercise, practiced consistently, allows you to increase your height by 1 centimeter (not because it has a magical effect but because it improves posture) and promotes weight loss.
The first few times you practice, the exercise can be annoying or even painful but as the spine and muscles gradually stretch it will no longer cause any problems.
In case of any full-blown back pathology, ask your doctor for advice before attempting this or other exercises to be done independently at home. Sometimes even seemingly simple and mundane workouts can be harmful.
