Back Pain





My back, neck and shoulders are killing me!
And work doesn't help.

I try to adjust my posture, but sometimes i find myself sitting in the weirdest positions to access whatever I'm working on.


When I get home all i want to do is lie straight down.


I have a set of neck and back exercises that i try to do as much as possible, and
I try getting weekly massages.

Ive been to a few places, but nothing has Wowed me so far.


I really don't want to cause permanent damage to my back.
Ya3ni ma teswa 3alay.

Anyways


What spas do you guys frequent?

And what kind of massages do you like?

In Dubai I mostly go to Sensasia... Thai Massage is the BEST... it fixes you up.. but you will be in pain the next day :p

I have the same problem and it's seriously killing me...it's been a pain, especially when it comes to me studying and I try to adjust the posture of my back and I can't.

My back pain is like the position highlighted in your pic, it's so frustrating and it really hurts.

By the way, what exersises do you do, if you don't mind me asking...it's just that I don't want any permanent damage like you said and I'm getting really annoyed by it.

Thank you :)

when i have bk pain i always ask 4 a back-shoulder massage..

1 hour of only my bk n shoulder.. its relaxing.. better then a whole body massage..

All you nee is a skillful husband.

When I first started working years ago I developed back pain too and the doctor advised me to guy a medical chair which I did and the pain subsided with time. He also advised a certain way to sit when you're working.

It's worth vising your doctor for and make sure you invest in a good chair that gives you good supports. I actually bought two identical ones from IKEA- one for work and one for home.

the best treatment for back ache is swimming, horse riding and dont wear high heel shoes.

Posture is very important. I have the same problem too, I guess it is caused by posture, the bed and the pillow we sleep on. Its very important to ensure the bed, the pillow the chair we sleep or sit on is comfortable. Try to change the position.

wee ism allah 3leech ma itshofeen shar... :***

i thought dentists sat on chairs? My dentist always sits in a round chair with wheels o a little back support????

I suggest u do yoga exercises....

i found u this... may be it can help?

I strongly recommend you see a chiropractor

September 9, 2009 at 11:05 AM  

i think you should check it out before having someone massage it, you never know what those pains could be. Sometimes certain pains are not good to have them treated at spa's.

i tried out a few places here in kuwait and my fav so far is spa time (in terms of the treatment itself)

oo i like the balinese massage the most.. very relaxing

September 9, 2009 at 12:24 PM  

No spas for me in Kuwait they are all bad >< never heard of a good one.

September 9, 2009 at 12:46 PM  

you need to join a gym and do some serious exercise! I had this problem before .. but the pain disappeared when i started working out!
i like spa time! hot stone massage:)

hmm.. I heard that massages aren't healthy for back pains. I might've heard that wrong :$

September 10, 2009 at 1:53 AM  

ugh, I'll be looking back to see what people suggest to you. No neck pain just back from all the trauma patientsI have to push and pull.. Salamtik babe, ma 3ala DAHRIK shar! lol

Hi,

I once hurt my back when I was challenged to lift my 120 kg friend and my lower back muscle ruptured. The best way was excersizing and stretching. Matshoofeen Sher.

This is going to sound really lame but I really enjoyed reading your blog. Actually I was very bored at work and I think I read all your posts ( Since 2007). :P I think you have a very attractive personality. I think I am starting to like you in a weird way. I just had to say that. It does not really mean anything

P.S This is my first time actually posting a comment in a blog and I really just wanted to tell you that. Alah ykather men amthalich

I hope this does not get posted... :P

1. Swedish massage @ banyan tree (royal hayatt hospital) try to get Kob she is the best.

2. Relaxing massage @ shiatsu (surra) they give the best massages ever.

*enjooy!

September 10, 2009 at 5:55 PM  

like ni3na3a said, u need to go to a gym.. wait, let me rephrase that:
u need to change ur lifestyle, in the sense that u need to make ur day, wait let me rephrase that.. ur HAPPINESS rotate around going to the gym

and massages are worthless without the exercise prior

as for the diet, ur a doctor, figure it out ;p

salamet albek sweets! w mbarak 3aleich il shaher (i know too late but have been away for long)

i had lower back pain for a while, u need to c a chiro, seriously, they can suggest the best thing in ur case coz every case is unique whether we admit it or not. for me, acupuncture worked wonders.

Bless!

September 11, 2009 at 12:52 PM  

Salamaat! I honestly don't do anything but swim, and riding motorcycles takes a toll on my back.. so swimming helps! :)
