Body Stress in the Lower Back

Causes of Stress in the Lower Back

The jarring effects of accidents and falls may cause body stress to be stored in the lower back. Also, heavy or incorrect lifting or bending may strain ligaments and muscles, and compress the iintervertebral discs. Incorrect, repetitive exercises involving twisting movements or repeated forward bending, may stress the spine. Another cause is poor posture, especially when sitting in a slumped position.
Sitting like this may give temporary relief from the back pain, as it causes the joint spaces to open up at the back and reduces pressure on the spinal nerves. However, this builds up compression of the discs and over time the back walls of the discs may weaken and start to bulge i.e. herniated or prolapsed disc.

Effects of Body Stress in the Lower Back

Body stress in the lower back irritates the spinal nerves and may result in back pain, at times referred along the nerve pathways into the abdomen, groin, hips, legs or feet. Numbness may also be experienced in any of these areas, as well as stiffness and muscle weakness. The compression in the lower back may become so severe that muscles lock up in a protective spasm, pulling the spine forwards or sideways.

While body stress remains stored in the lower back, the pressure on the nerves may disturb the normal functioning of the areas and organs that they supply. Thus body stress may lead to digestive problems, such as constipation or diarrhoea, bladder complaints, sexual dysfunction etc. A very common complaint is severe menstrual cramps dysmenorrhea and pain which often cease when the lower-back compression is released.

I have been going to Retha for Body Stress Release on a regular basis and I cannot explain how my body feels after BSR sessions with her... I can only say that it is how I always imagined my body was supposed to feel ... light, pain free, comfortable. Thank you Retha! You are truly amazing!

Retha is really professional. I had 3 sessions with her just before lockdown... and it was really amazing. I could feel the tension and stress leaving. I suffered from upper back..and lower neck pain for almost 6 months on and off...and it was gone immediately after the first session with her...came back a bit a few days later...but then gone so far after session 3 now for 3 weeks! I can really highly recommend her.

After falling of my horse and collided with steel poles i could barely move. Hurt my shoulder, elbow and coccyx quite badly and extremely sore muscles i went to see Retha. Within hours after my first session i could move around and sore muscles were not as bad. She also pointed out some other issues i had and worked on them as well. Within a few days my elbow and shoulder were good to go and i could go back to my normal routine of riding and working.
