How Somatic Exercise Can Heal Your Chronic Back Pain

Posted by Kelsey Juntwait on

If you're one of the millions of people who suffers from back pain that keeps you in bed most mornings, tension headaches that have you popping Tylenol all day, and overwhelming stress that's just plain annoying, you know just how debilitating all those things combined can actually be. But there is good news!!

And that good news is that back pain relief is possible in the form of somatic exercise.

Somatic exercise programs like the 8 signature courses The Workout Witch has created can soothe your daily back pain, rid that tension from your hips and body, relieve the daily headaches, and rid your body of the trauma it's storing and the stress it's experiencing. 

So no matter what other treatment or healing journey you've started for your chronic back pain, somatic exercise should be your next step!

What are Somatic Exercises?

Somatic exercises are gentle movements that connect your physical body and emotional body to both your nervous system and your somatic memory. This process of movement allows you to actually heal the symptoms that manifest in the body and mind after experiencing any form of trauma, including long-term stress, chronic anxiety, and both long-term and short-term physical trauma.

It can be said that somatic exercise is a holistic approach to wellness that physically helps you tap into the wisdom and natural pathways of your own body. And that helps to develop a greater sense of bodily awareness and control.

Somatic exercise gets to the root of the cause of the symptoms of stored trauma, rather than just covering up the symptoms themselves. So while somatic exercise is great for trauma release, it's also great for a variety of many other things. 

Here are just a few other benefits of somatic exercise:

  • Heals chronic inflammation
  • Balances hormones, including cortisol
  • Relieves sciatica and hip pain
  • Relieves tension headaches and migraines
  • Relieves stomach issues
  • Relieves neck and shoulder tension
  • Relieves jaw pain and night-time teeth grinding.
  • Relieves upper and lower back pain.
  • Improves sleep patterns
  • Clears brain fog
  • + SO much more...

Additionally, a somatic exercise program can be done by anyone anywhere. These types of movements don't require any equipment, can be modified to work with all body types and abilities, and can be done in as little as 10 minutes in the comfort of your own home (even in your own bed!).

Somatic exercises help you to develop greater control of your body, move with more grace and fluidity, and allow you to live a life that's finally pain- and stress-free.

How can somatic exercise help with back pain?

Unfortunately, back pain is a common problem felt by a lot of people. It presents itself in several different ways and is caused by a variety of factors. But the similarity between it all is that chronic back pain can seriously disrupt everyday life.

Back pain is an incredibly common symptom of living with high stress for far too long. And specifically, that you've been living in survival mode for far too long.

So while other typical treatments like taking Ibuprofen or rubbing your back or investing in yet another massage can work to heal your pain, these treatments are never actually going to get rid of the pain for good — they'll only provide short-term relief of it.

So how do you get rid of back pain for good?

With somatic exercises. 

Because, as mentioned above, somatic exercise allows your body to get to the root cause of the pain.

When doing somatic exercises specifically for back pain (like the ones in our 30 day course Heal Your Lower Back In 30 Days), your body starts to release the tension and trauma being stored there.

This happens because the simple, daily movements connect your nervous system (and the shutting down of it...) to the manifestations of how that's showing up throughout your body. And in this case, it's through your back.

Now, not everyone stores trauma in their back.

But if you find yourself feeling like you've been in survival mode and you have chronic back pain, then you probably do!

Typically, people who store trauma and tension in their back feel burdened by a lot of responsibilities, which causes them to feel anger towards a lot of people. They fear that their basic emotional and physical needs aren’t being met, but they also feel like they have no time to practice the self care allowing them to meet those needs. Storing trauma in the back can also be a sign of experiencing financial struggles.
