Please visit the techniques page now, if you haven't already. The techniques are extremely simple, but being familiar with them will vastly improve the effectiveness of what we do below.
On the homepage I describe…in detail…the 3 Simple Steps and the 4 Basic Facts about your body that make it possible for you to provide your own joint pain relief. It's good to know why what you're about to do actually works, but it's not required, so I'll leave that decision to you. There's a 95% chance that you......like thousands upon thousands of others.....can provide your own "back pain lower left side" pain relief, so let's get to it.
The "tennis ball tune-up" (click here) is the main approach we'll be using for your lower left side back pain.
However, in recent months I've become very fond of using varies sports balls of different sizes to do the tennis-ball-tune-up, so now I tend to call it the "sports ball release".
So, for starters, go and collect a bunch of different sports balls from around your house (yes, you can steal your dogs tennis ball for a few moments!). If you only have a tennis ball or only one other ball that's fine, but grab as many as you can.
Now, since you're symptom is "back pain lower left side" take one of the sports balls and place in under your left buttocks and sit on it with some your bodyweight focused on the ball. Once you get the hang of how to control and adjust your bodyweight, begin investigating for tight painful tissue in this left side of your buttocks.
After a minute or two of playing around, take a different sized ball and repeat the process of seeking out the painful tight tissue. Then take another ball for just a minute and repeat the process again.
Hopefully, you noticed a difference in the balls. Some of you might like the tennis ball, others a baseball, heck I'm sure a cricket ball is someone's favorite from another country.
Again, since you have back pain lower left side, take your new favorite ball and place it under your left buttocks, find a tight spot, and now move your left leg so that the tissue being pressed on is forced to move, and thereby release.
Repeat this process for your entire left buttock.
And then repeat the entire process on your right buttock for any tight areas you may find.
How much "back pain lower left side" pain relief occurred from performing this technique?
The "release the front of your back" (click here) page goes into what we do here in great detail if you need further explanation, so no worries. Just take your time and you'll do great!.
We'll be targeting a muscle called your iliacus. It covers the inside surface of the front (anterior) portion of your hip bone. It can cause back pain lower left side by being tight and pulling on your back from the front of your back.
It seems like a lot, but the technique is pretty simple once you get the hang of it. You're basically going to find tight tissue, just like you do with every other muscle, and when you find it you are going to press on it and either do a press-pull-release technique or a press-hold-move technique.
So lie on your back and put your feet flat on the floor with your knees bent. Take your fingertips and press them into the tissue on the inside surface of your pelvic bone at about a 45 degree angle. From the top of your hip, all the way down to your pubic bone search for tight tissue.
When you find some, you can do a press-pull-release technique to get what release you can. And then, by tucking your tailbone up and down, do a press-hold-move technique as you press on the tight tissue.
Notice how much "back pain lower left side" pain relief occurs from this one technique.
Now do the exact same thing on your right iliacus muscle, and then take notice of how much your back pain lower right side has benefited from releasing this muscle.
I can't emphasize enough, the importance to this technique. This is one of my "party tricks" if I meet someone with lower left back pain. With their permission, I will reach down and work on the side their leg and the outer quad of their opposite leg for about 30 seconds. About 8 times out of 10 they are shocked that the pain in their lower left back has been improved!
On the outer third of your RIGHT quadricep (your vastus lateralis muscle), investigate with your fingertips for any tight tissue from your knee all the way up to your hip. When you find tight tissue, use the press-pull-release and the hand-on-hand technique to release the tissue.
This is a large area, so feel free to take your time and take breaks. You can even do it over more than one session.
When you are done releasing your vastus lateralis, then repeat this process on your RIGHT I.T. Band. It's the tissue that runs up the outside of your leg.
And when you are done with your right leg, repeat this entire process on your left leg.
To what degree has your "back pain lower left side" been reduced?
Are you still experiencing some lower left back pain?

Investigate a bit and you'll eventually find which techniques work best for you to provide the best lower left back pain relief. Then you'll be able to fix yourself whenever you desire because you'll have your own personalized lower back pain remedy……literally at your fingertips!
