Another back ache bites the dust

Got some more pictures for you of someone who’s suffered with back pain for about 6 years.  Not just back pain, but searing, debilitating back pain.  Now, to be clear and upfront, he’s still got some pain lingering around, but he’s moving very obviously in the right direction.  For someone who’s had nonstop pain for 6 years, getting 30 minutes of relief at a time is a big step in the right direction.  Now he’s getting a few hours a day of relief.

Here are his pictures.  The picture on the left is the first day.  The picture on the right is after one week of doing “some” of his exercises on a daily basis (meaning he didn’t do all of them as he was supposed to).

Can you tell why his pain is getting better?  Just look at the curvature of his spine in the first picture versus the second picture, and it should be a little more obvious.  Look at how the curve of his spine affects the pooching out of his belly.  His body wasn’t working efficiently.  He was getting a lot of extra strain on his back because of its non-ideal position.

Now it’s moving closer to a more efficient posture that means, quite simply, less pain.
