ACUPRESSURE FOR EFFECTIVE LUMBAR RELIEF
Lumbar pain or low back pain is something most of us will experience at one time or another. It has many causes. In most cases, the pain can be attributed to the tightening of the muscles and ligaments that surround the lumbar vertebrae. Pain is often experienced after intense physical exertion that has damaged or strained a muscle. It can also be the result of sitting in front of a computer for long periods.
Why is the lumbar spine so important?
The lumbar spine connects the thoracic spine (upper body) to the rear pelvis. It's made up of five vertebrae at the base of your spine. You can feel a slight inward curve when you place your hand on this area, where the spine's vertebrae move at the facet joints. The lumbar spinal nerves emanate from between these joints and supply your legs with feeling and muscle power. The disc in between each lumbar vertebra acts as shock absorber during exercise or heavy lifting.
Most common reasons for low back pain
Symptoms of a lumbar spine problems include back pain that get worse when you bend forward, tingling, weakness or numbness in the legs, and shooting nerve pain. When this emanates from the lower portion of the spinal cord, there are three groups of causes that lead to back pain: biological, psychological and social factors. Biological factors include genetic disk disease, abnormalities of the bony enclosure around the spinal cord or spinal canal, or injury (that may require input from orthopaedic surgeons to assess your suitability for surgery), carrying excess weight, arthritis. Your doctor will encourage you to reach a healthy weight and perhaps offer help to quit smoking. We know a lot of our customers suffer the psychological causes of back pain; excess tension in the back muscles around the spine (and other parts of the body) caused by stress and anxiety. Sleep problems become a vicious cycle when you cannot rest because of back pain and then lack of sleep causes a more intense back pain. Past experiences of pain can cause a fear of movement, that increases risk of muscle tension due to lack of whole body movement. Another huge spine pain cause is social factors: poor family or work relationships literally cause back pain, along with other external stressors including social isolation.

Why use Pranamat ECO for lower back pain?
Based on the ancient principles of acupuncture and acupressure, Pranamat ECO relieves acute and chronic pain in the lower back. With regular use you can substantially decrease the onset of pain. The patented lotus flower massage elements press into the skin. This relaxes the muscle fibers and eliminates tension, pinching and muscle spasms. Tension in the lumbar region hinders blood and lymphatic circulation, which can cause further pain and stiffness. The massage reduces the pressure on the vertebrae, improves blood circulation and helps to hydrate the intervertebral discs. By improving blood and lymphatic circulation, the spine and muscle tissues are better nourished by oxygen and nutrients. This type of massage stimulates the nervous system, which produces the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain-killer. Endorphins also produce feelings of light euphoria, peace and comfort.
How does it work?
Pranamat ECO is covered with patented lotus flowers, with pointed petals, which press into the surface of the skin. These activate the acupressure points, which stimulates the central nervous system, improves blood and lymphatic circulation, and supplies oxygen and nutrients to the body. The increase in blood flow aids in recovery from exercise or injury. The deep relaxation of the muscles eliminates the tension and spasms that cause back pain and pain in the lumbar spine. As with classic massage, Pranamat ECO helps to release endorphins, also known as "happiness hormones", which have a strong analgesic and anti-stress effect, reducing anxiety, and inducing a sense of contentment, tranquillity and security. Massage with Pranamat ECO will leave feeling as good as new, happier and well-rested.
Exercises to treat lower back pain
When you feel acute pain, use Pranamat ECO on problem areas for 5-7 minutes every 2-3 hours. If you suffer with chronic pain, use Pranamat ECO for between 15 and 30 minutes twice daily. For lumbar pain, it can be useful to place the Pranamat ECO pillow in the small of your back, to effectively stimulate this area.

With regular usage, pain in the lower back disappears, it eliminates fatigue and tension, allowing you to lead an active life. Pain is a symptom or a signal.

Pranamat ECO acts throughout the body for pain-relief and, in some cases, cures the root-cause of the pain. For example, by releasing the tension in the muscles surrounding a nerve. Or by increasing the circulation of nutrients and oxygen to the muscles supporting the spine, holding the vertebrae in their proper place. Or by reducing inflammation – the underlying cause of many conditions.
