When back muscles are stretched a bit more than they like to be, they get crabby. They can get really crabby. Why?
They are trying to tell you something.
They are saying, “Help! I’m not happy! You are straining me! Stop it!”
But what do we often do?
> Take a couple of pills to hopefully relieve the discomfort in your back. But that doesn’t really cure the back pain; just helps cover it up, maybe.
> Use heat. Oh, not good! Why?
Because heat helps those poor overstretched muscles relax and get even more stretched. And even more unhappy.
