Some of the exercises you try to make your back pain go away could actually hurt it more. Care2 recently looked at the incorrect ways to use a foam roller. Despite how simple a roller looks, using it the wrong way can cause problems.
Don’t place the roller directly on the lower back, or roll on the same spot for too long. At the same time, avoiding any possible sources of pain during rolling could also be a bad sign.
However, in the right circumstances, a roller could be useful for back pain sufferers. Men’s Health said that a roller can treat upper and lower back pain, as well as pain in the heels.
