Are you having back pain with any of the following?
We understand that you are experiencing one or more of the health issues that might be impacting your back pain.
We recommend that you discuss these health issues with your doctor before proceeding with this program.
Once you are cleared by your doctor to do this program, we hope it helps you find relief from your back pain.
Getting a good night’s sleep is vital for a healthy lifestyle and can help prevent or manage chronic disease. We can help you deal with sleeplessness so that you can be more alert and stay productive during the day.
Relaxation exercises are a great way to clear your mind, relax your body, and get ready for sleep. You can reduce your stress by doing them during the day, but they can be really helpful as you are getting ready to fall asleep or if you wake up in the middle of the night.
These exercises use abdominal breathing techniques for a few seconds or a few minutes to relax your muscles and clear your mind. Turning down the lights and finding a comfortable position during these activities will help you become sleepy. You can do them with your eyes open or closed.
If you have an emergency medical condition, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital. An emergency medical condition is any of the following: (1) a medical condition that manifests itself by acute symptoms of sufficient severity (including severe pain) such that you could reasonably expect the absence of immediate medical attention to result in serious jeopardy to your health or body functions or organs; (2) active labor when there isn't enough time for safe transfer to a Plan hospital (or designated hospital) before delivery, or if transfer poses a threat to your (or your unborn child's) health and safety, or (3) a mental disorder that manifests itself by acute symptoms of sufficient severity such that either you are an immediate danger to yourself or others, or you are not immediately able to provide for, or use, food, shelter, or clothing, due to the mental disorder.
