Pain Relief Success Story, From Mike:

"I followed your YouTube video on how to relieve lower left side back pain. I must thank you. I did exactly what you said and it worked... You really know what you are doing. Thank you for sharing the info." Mike, Canada

You can do it too!


As discussed on the Homepage, one of the primary causes of back pain lower left side can be the bigger stronger muscles in your hips and upper legs getting tight and pulling on your smaller weaker lower back muscles.

Remember, bones are just chunks of calcium, so bones only go where muscles pull or hold them. So if the big strong muscle groups that attach to the bones of your pelvis are pulling on those bones, then your lower back muscles that also attach to those bones are going to loose the tug-of-war……and then you will experience lower back pain. Lower back pain relief is often as simple as releasing the muscle groups that are tight.

Also, if by chance you have a excruciatingly intense back pain lower left side, AND that pain wraps around to the front of your abdomen then you may have kidney stone. As William Shatner (Captain Kirk) said of his kidney stone experience, "The purity of the pain was unbelievable!" If the pain is that bad then please seek out a medical doctor.

If the back pain lower left side is not extremely intense but still wraps around to your abdomen then you may have a kidney infection. I would recommend you do the techniques on this website, and if they don't help then go to your medical doctor to see if you have an infection.

Step 1 - Release Tailbone and Hip Bone



Your lower back pain may be instantly relieved from doing Step 1, and that's great. But keep in mind you may want to visit the the main Lower Back Pain Relief page (click here) to make your pain relief even more stable.

Here's what we're going to do:

We'll be doing a technique very similar to the "tennis ball tune-up" (click here) seen on the main lower back pain relief videos. Except we're going to give you a few more options to release your hip bone and tailbone.

I'm very fond of using a tennis ball to release your hips, but recently I've started using a softball (or a baseball) for the upper part of your hips. I find it is very comfortable and allows me to put a great deal of my body weight on the muscles in the hips, while I move my legs to activate the muscle being pressed upon.

First, find a tennis ball, baseball and a softball. If you don't have all three then just use whatever you've got.

Now lie on your back on the floor or on a firm mattress. Start with the softball if you have it (if not then go with a baseball, and if not that, then go with a soft ball).

Since we are trying to relieve your "back pain lower LEFT side" lift your butt up and place the softball (or other ball) under your LEFT upper buttocks. This is just below your hip bone, below your lower back.
Do NOT put the ball under your lower back.

Move the ball around this general area and apply your body weight on the ball and notice which tissue is tender (painful) when you rest your body weight upon it.

When you find a tender area apply your body weight to the ball and then raise and lower your leg so that you can feel the tissue under the ball move. You want the tissue you are pressing on to be forced to release a bit from the movement of your leg.

Repeat this technique for the entire upper half of your left buttocks.

Notice how much "back pain lower left side" pain relief occurs from this one technique.

REPEAT this entire process on the upper half of your right buttock.

Step 2 - Inner Hip Release



This is a fantastic technique for lower left back pain, so please just take your time and follow along with the video. You'll be glad you did.

I cover this one technique in great detail here "release the front of your back" - lower back pain remedy (click here) if you need further explanation.

Here's what we're going to do:

Lie on your back and press your fingertips into your lower left abdomen (belly). Find the pointy part of your hip bone that just about at your belt line. This is your "anterior superior iliac spine", also known as your ASIS!

Now take your fingertips and move them slightly back (an inch) toward your belly button.

Now press into your abdomen downward and toward your ASIS. You'll be pressing into a muscle called your iliacus. Press inward, all along your inner hip bone until you reach your pubic bone and notice any tender (painful) tissue.

When you find a tender spot, press on the spot while you tuck your tailbone up and down, up and down. This will help the iliacus tight tissue to release. You can move from spot to spot if some are stubborn, but generally they will release pretty quickly.

Notice how much "back pain lower left side" pain relief occurs from this one technique.

REPEAT this entire process on the right side of your body.

Step 3 - Outer Thigh, Side of Leg Release



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!

So here's what we're going to do:

Sit in a chair or on a stool. You are going to work on your RIGHT LEG first, so take the tips of your fingers on your left hand and put then on the top outer third of the top of your thigh and the side of your leg (vastus lateralis muscle, IT band).
Now curve your fingers on your hand a little bit, and take the palm of your other hand and place it over the fingers already on your leg. We call this the hand-on-hand technique- it allows you to apply pressure without tiring out your hands. You will simply press on the tissue with your finger tips, and press on your finger tips with the palm of your other hand. It's amazing how much easier it is to work on yourself using the "hand on hand" technique.
Use your fingertips to press along the entire length of the top outer third of your quadriceps and side of your leg on all the soft tissue (from your knee to your hip bones) and notice any tender spots.
Now......with your "hand on hand" position......we'll do the press-pull-release technique press-pull-and-release, press-pull-and-release (press and pull for about 1 full seconds and then release) continuously, with your finger tips using the "hand on hand" method into the tender spots until they become less tender.

Notice how much lower left back pain relief this technique creates for future reference. It is often the case that if you have lower left back pain then working on your right leg in this manner releases your back pain. And if your have lower right back pain then releasing the left leg in this manner provides immediate lower back pain relief. Knowing this can save you or your friends and family from a lot of pain.

Notice how much "back pain lower left side" pain relief this one technique provides for future reference.

Now do this technique on your other leg.
