Massage your feet to alleviate back pain
Cure joy recommends massaging your feet to alleviate back pain. Either you suffer with chronic back pain or occasional back pain, massaging the pressure point on your feet helps.
Treat lower back pain by applying pressure to the reflexes on the soles of your feet, the entire area around your heel and around your ankle, as well as the inner edge of each foot—the reflex points for your spine are located along the inside edges of your feet. Upper back pain is treated by applying reflexology to the reflex points for your shoulders and upper back, which are represented on the soles and tops of your feet just beneath the base of your toes.
The article also suggests two acupressure points which you can massage that will alleviate the spine pain specifically.
Sit straight and hold your feet. Take the right foot into your hands. Find the bone that joins the big toe and the second toe. Place your thumb in this area and put pressure on it. Press for one minute, keep inhaling and exhaling. Decrease the pressure and rub the area. Repeat the same on the other foot.Start by washing and drying your feet.
Sit down on the bed or a chair. Cross your legs and hold the right foot in the left hand. Roll your hand back and forth on your right foot to relax the muscles. Now rub your thumb in the middle of your foot from the heel to toe. Thumb walk this area a few times to relax the muscles.
