We often hear our clients say they are unable to complete their Taraweeh prayers due to lower back pain OR they avoid going to the mosque to pray because they are unable to last!
We understand how annoying this could be for you. Not only is it a painful experience, but the struggle to stay focused/maintain khushoo in prayer due to pain can be frustrating.
The Team at Masnad Health Clinic believe this Ramadan should be your best Ramadan and your lower back pain should not limit you. In the month of Ramadan we help many people solve their back, hip, knee or ankle pain and you’re definitely not alone with this problem.
Our team of expert Physiotherapists and Chiropractors suggest you follow these 5 easy exercises to relieve your lower back pain and to help you stay focused in your Taraweeh prayers! These stretches are easy to complete. They can be done anywhere, but are best done on a thick carpet surface or yoga mat and they will take you less than 10 minutes to complete.
*Note this exercise is designed to reduce a disc bulge that may be pinching on a nerve and causing leg pain. However it must be performed at the right time to prevent it from aggravating your symptoms. If you have pain radiating down your legs it is best to consult with one of our Physiotherapists or Chiropractors prior to completing this exercise.
We recommend performing these exercises after each prayer or at least twice a day. Being consistent with these exercises will promote better movement in your muscles and joints hence reducing stiffness and pain.
Disclaimer: Please note these exercises are designed for people with non- specific/generalised lower back pain. If your symptoms are severe or have pain radiating down your legs, you should consult with one of our Physiotherapists or Chiropractors prior to completing these exercises.
Thanks for reading, we hope these exercises help you in increasing your standing times in Taraweeh and Tahajjud/Night prayers this Ramadan.
