Default How to avoid lower back pain when running? - 12-19-2008, 08:01 AM

I've been running cross-country for four years now, but this is the first year I've exerpeince lower back pain. What can I do to avoid this? One of my teammates said it could be posture, but now says my posture shouldn't be triggering lower back pain. What could be causing this, and what can I do to avoid this?

It can be from shoes, it could be just growth pains, hormone changes, even diet.Check with your doctor to make sure there isn't anything serious going on with your spine. Try different shoes.

I run x-c and track, ummm, it could be how you sit at home...I have back problems from doing my workouts, though. Or maybe if you use a backback...the weight could injure your back. I know this might sound stupid, but do sit-ups to gain core strength, because a strong stomach means a strong back. And when you do your kick, don't bend as far forward to prevent more injury.

i currently have back pain, but its from playing football. but i went to the doctor and they gave me a sheet with excersises i could do to stretch my back. i have to do them 3 times a day, but it helps keep the pain away. im sure if u searched for lower back pain excersises you could find some.

I've ran X-C back in high school, now I'm in the AF, and my lower back pains are beginning to ache very much. 1. You can put insoles in your shoes 2. Stretch (which is always given) but do not take stretching for granite 3. Your posture should be upright when you run 4. Try to analyze the way your feet strike ground the next time you are running. Are you heels thumping the ground or is it a smooth roll on the ball of your feet? 5. This is the option I am moving to now, and it is to see a Chiropractor, they should be able to tell you if one of your legs are slightly longer than the other, and I've heard of this before from some people. 6. Try running with Motion Control running shoes, these shoes are made strictly for the flat feet (if you are). 7. And last the brand and texture of the shoe that you run in can also make a difference, are the shoes you run w. clown shoes, or are they well fitted? I hope these help you narrow down your problem ma girl.Peace

It is a problem related to the posture or the moves you are doing while exercising. It is necessary to take care about various things when you are in the sports or any other job that involves a physical work.
