Learn This One Simple Move to Get Rid of Back Pain


♪ Bob and Brad ♪ ♪ The two most famous ♪ ♪ Physical therapists ♪ ♪ On the internet ♪ – Booyah! Hi folks, I’m Bob Schrupp,
Physical Therapist. – Brad Heineck, Physical Therapist. Together, we are the most
famous physical therapists on the internet. – In our own opinion, of course, Bob. – Today, we’re going to help
you learn this one simple move, to get rid of your back pain. And my wife just went
through this, and we use this as a visual thing, tool, for her. – Sure. – And it really worked well. She caught on to the concept really quick. So, I think it’s a great idea. So, by the way, if you’re
new to our channel– – Oh yes. – Please take a second to subscribe to us. We provide videos on how
to stay healthy, fit, pain-free, and we upload every day. Also, you want to join us on
our social media channels, and our website. Go to bobandbrad.com, ’cause we’re always giving something away. This week, we’re giving away the FITINDEX Vibrating Peanut Massage Ball. This thing is awesome. I mean, if you haven’t seen
the video already on it, watch our video. We just put it up on Sunday afternoon. – Oh, we did! – But this thing, I’ll tell you, this does the job of those
expensive, hundred-dollar, foam rollers that are vibrating. – Oh I see, yeah. – It can get into spots,
get into the hips and stuff. So, you’re going to love it. – It is built well, too. – Yeah, built well, too. Or you can join us on
Twitter or Instagram. – Oh yeah, yeah. – We get a shortened
version of Bob and Brad’s 60-Second Version, instead
of this entire rambling on. – [Brad] Right, thank god for that. – All right Brad, let’s move her on here. So, one of the problems why people tend to keep exacerbating their back pain, their back pain doesn’t go away, is for the simple reason, is they are not keeping the back in
its protected position. Now, on a normal back, if
it’s in the good position, you have a curve in, a
curve out, and a curve in. – When you’re looking from the side. – Yeah, he’s oriented just like I am. Curve in. – Curve out.
– Curve out. Curve in. Now you want to maintain that spine. I tell my patients, it’s
like you have it in a cast. – Sure. – The upper body’s the cast. You don’t want to break that cast. So, when you’re lifting something, you don’t want to go like this. You don’t want to do that hinge. You want to keep this part straight. All the movement should
come from the hips. So, you see that? So, if you’re bending forward, the movement comes from the hips. If you’re getting out of a chair, the movement comes from the hips. If you’re picking something off the floor, all the movement comes from the hips. – Yoga people are well familiar with this. – Right, exactly. So, this is the position
you want to maintain. So, what I used with my
wife to describe this, because she had just hurt her back. She had tweaked her back, and
she was picking things up, and it was still, she’s
like, ow, ow, ow, ow, when she was bending forward, because she was bending forward like this. So, I had her take the booyah stick, and we’ve done this
many times, Brad and I, and there’s three points of contact. Brad do you want to point them out. So, one’s on the head. One’s on the mid-back. And one’s kind of on the pelvis. If any one of those is not touching, if I’m like this, I’m bent forward. If I’m like this, my
back is really rounded. – Right. – So, she said she didn’t
even really need the stick. She just pictured the stick there. – Sure. – And she’d start
lifting, and she goes, oh, she could do it without pain. – Mm hm. – So, that’s the glorified result, so. – That’s why I’m wearing
this ridiculous belt. – Right. – ‘Cause I thought, you can be functional, and this could be, if I’m
touching here, here, and here, I mean this is, it really
forces good posture. – Yeah, that’s a key thing. – And it makes you be
aware of what’s going on with your spine. – Right. And if you don’t have a booyah stick, you could use a broom handle,
and just work with it a while. – Yep. – Try some of these things. If you’re leaning forward at
the sink to brush your teeth, this is how you should be leaning forward. You shouldn’t be leaning
forward like this. – Right. – If you’re leaning
forward to make the bed, this is where a lot of people are hurting, when they lean forward to make that bed. Also, it helps to have your
arms supported on the bed. – Right, right. – ‘Cause it takes some of
the pressure off your back. – There’s a number of other little tricks that we have, but the posture is the base. – Yeah, so, even getting out of a chair, this is very common. People, want to hold that
just for a second Brad? – Yeah. – A lot of people, what do they do? They lean forward, and
they round out their back, and get out of the chair. So, you want to learn that, again, you could take your broom
handle or the booyah stick, and you’re going to put it in place, and now you’re going to
learn to get out of the chair correctly. With everything all
straight, the back protected. Eventually you can even work
on doing some squats like this. This is a great posture thing. – A little trick is, you really need to scoot your butt forward
on the edge of the chair, that’s going to allow that mechanics to become much more easy, and less stress. – So, try this out, and
you’re going to find out that if you have back pain, a lot of times you can eliminate those triggers, which is putting the back
into that hinged position, and starts making the
pain worse, inflaming it. – I don’t know Bob, but
I was just thinking, if may be not too long, and
we’re going to see people out on the sidewalks, walking
around with their booyah stick for their back, or whatever,
to maintain that posture. – Oh yeah, I’m sure
we’re going to see this on all the city streets. – You could put a flag on top. – Remember the cone heads that
were on Saturday Night Live? – Oh yeah, yeah. – Yeah, they were the big cone heads. We’re going to have the booyah heads. – Yeah. – So, one way or an– – Booyah! (laughing) Say no more. – All right, we’re going
a little crazy here. But thanks for watching everybody.

    The next time I go out weeding I am going to strap a broom stick to my back. It should be interesting as I live on a very busy corner!

    Unfortunately I have no problem bending over to pick things up, pull weeds, whatever. It's straightening back up that's difficult. And that tip about getting up from a chair, that is helpful!

    I've made progress with this by day, but have to laugh because at night I find myself curling around. If I catch it and straighten out it's ok, but it requires a good bit of focus.

    Do you have any videos on where one foot or hip is rotated out more then the other and how to fix this?

    I had an injury and my body did that afterwards (it was in the hip flexor or psoas we think originally and it may have been my hip). I don’t know for sure if my hip is rotated or something else. Even though I’m giving limited information, I’m hoping you see this and can help as I’ve been in pain daily for months now. Thanks.

    I can relate to the needing help with my posture. And the cone heads movie 😀

    Please enable the search feature on your YouTube page. I think it would really help people, including myself, find specific videos without having to Google them.

    Side note , doing squats against a wall or holding onto a chair will strengthen legs so you can lift better in proper way you guys described. This became critical in my 60s when muscles in legs started to get less flexible.

    Six days ago I went to the chiropractor. After he crunched my back and neck, although painful, I felt better…untill I got home. Then the pain on my left torso started, in front, on back…so exruciating that I am unable to lie down or to deep breathe or talk loudly…It is getting better now but I am getting headache every night on my left side…I really don't know what to do. I cannot move much, every movement is like 10 knifes in my left side. Please help

    What about deep top load washing machine? Hard to reach down in it without bending with a curve.

    One of your older videos on back aches that touched upon the facet joint has changed my life. Just three days of those stretches and the persistent backache that I had for over a year has nearly vanished. Thanks a lot

    Thank yous for your instructions, I am an old man, a janitor who suffers from back ache, and has to bend, stretch, and lift during shift. Tonight I was in so much pain before work, it took me an hour longer to do the job, and I felt like throwing up. I enjoy your presentation, light hearted, but easy to understand. I commend you both for your unselfish, compassionate sharing of your expertise to help others.

    FYI there is a free website to check which names are taken on which social media sites, so you can coordinate them and have the same handles across platforms. Hope this helps. https://namechk.com
