How can I avoid back pain during sex?
To avoid back pain during sex, you need to be evaluated and diagnosed properly; then you need to communicate with your partner to find what's most comfortable for you. Watch physical therapist Peggy Brill discuss how to prevent back pain during sex.
You want this to be a very intimate and trusted position to have this sensuality and not be distracted by pain
or be bracing yourself because you're worried about back pain. [MUSIC PLAYING]
Avoiding back pain during sex is-- you know, first of all, you need to get evaluated and find out how do you relieve your pain when you're not having sex?
You know, getting on your belly, doing press-ups, does that relieve your pain, or lying on your back, pulling one knee to your chest, two knees to your chest,
doing a routine like more stretching in that direction? Again, everybody's different, and they need to be individually evaluated and diagnosed
by a physical therapist that can tell you how do you restore that function? And then when you're looking at the sex,
you know, part, like, you know, how do I keep my spine supported? Again, with the pillows under the low back is great.
Just like as if you were sitting in a chair, you'd put a pillow in your low back that feels better. Kind of explore that.
Honey, let me get a pillow under my back. Or why don't you try this, you know, because that feels better on my back.
You know, again, you want this to be a very intimate and trusted position to have this sensuality and not be distracted by pain
or be bracing yourself because you're worried about back pain. Because, again, that affects not just you, but your partner.
