Back exercises, back pain

Overview *

Back pain is one of the most common medical problems in the U.S. It affects most people at least once in their lifetime. If not taken seriously, back pain can last for a long period of time, and can become disabling.

The most common cause of back pain is muscle spasms. An awkward movement of the back can lead to a severe muscle spasm. The muscle spasm causes the back to "cramp" and can cause severe pain.

The best way to prevent back pain is to regularly exercise the back. It is recommended that you do back strengthening and stretching exercises at least 2 or 3 times per week.

Another good way of preventing back and leg pain is by using good back techniques at home and at work. Adopt a straight posture while sitting or standing.

Exercising the back muscles for 15 minutes a day, 3 times a week has three main benefits:
- It strengthens the muscles of the back, neck, and shoulders. This makes back injuries less likely.
- It makes the back more flexible, increasing its range of motion and endurance.
- It relaxes the back and reduces pain.
