Belly Dancing to Relieve Back Pains
From its name, a lot of people believe that only the abdominals move in belly dancing. But far from it, belly dance exercises muscles that are often neglected or ignored. Movements like the snake arms and the shimmy work the body from head to toe. Even the fingers move in this exotic dance form. Every bone and part of the body is employed.Upper Back Anatomy Explained
The medical name for the upper or middle back is the thoracic spine and it has a very different role to play when compared to either the lower back, which in medical terms is known as the lumbar spine, or the neck, known as the cervical spine. These latter two are designed for mobility. However, our thoracic spine has a very different function. It is extremely strong and unmoving therefore not only protecting our vital organs such as lungs, heart and liver but also giving us the means to stand up.Back Pain and Osteopathy

Back pain is no fun, no matter how you look at it. But if you are one of the millions of sufferers of back pain, then there are some things you can do to alleviate some of your discomfort. A simple way to help lessen the stress on your back is to do just that: take the pressure off. Lay flat on your back on the floor or on your bed with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. This simple position rotates your pelvis forward and gently curls your lower back, relieving some of the pressure on your spinal column. When going to sleep, modify this position by placing a pillow under your knees. The curve of your lumbar spine will not be as great, but the relief of some of that strain will be gone.
