Our backs are under a lot of pressure throughout the day. Between working out, commuting, household activities, and sitting at a desk for extended periods of time, we don’t give our backs much of a break. It’s no surprise that sore backs are a common occurrence. If you’re reading this, you probably understand just how big of a nuisance that nagging sensation can be. What you may not know is exactly what you can do to get rid of it, fast!
Why is my Back Sore?
There are many factors that can contribute to a sore back. The most common are overuse, poor mechanics, and inactivity. Overuse occurs from pushing yourself beyond your normal activity levels, whether that’s from hitting it hard at the gym or doing extra chores around the house. Physical activity creates microtears in your muscle fibers, which then initiates the inflammatory response in your body.
Inflammation is necessary for the body to deliver the nutrients that help repair muscles. However, when you don’t clear out the waste, swelling typically occurs. This buildup of waste puts pressure on the nerves and causes discomfort.
On the other end of the spectrum, too little activity can also cause sore and tight muscles. Your body’s repair process relies on movement, which is why we loosen up after participating in low stress movements, such as walking or dynamic stretches. The right amount of movement allows muscles to remain fluid and perform optimally. The trick is to find the balance between too much or too little.
For those who sit at a desk all day, it’s natural to find yourself in compromised positions. It takes a lot of effort to remain in proper posture for an entire day. Slouching is inevitable. While entirely avoidable, it’s highly impractical to think we can keep proper mechanics 24/7 with everything else that needs our attention. To deal with the poor posture, inactivity, and overuse, many people have seen success with using Marc Pro to enhance their recovery and provide relief to sore, tight muscles.
