Back exercises, back pain

Overview *

The best way to prevent back pain is to regularly exercise the back at least 2 or 3 times a week for a period of 15 to 30 minutes. Before starting a back exercise program, consult with your healthcare provider, especially if you have had a back injury or a history of back problems.

Three main benefits to back exercise are:
- Strengthening muscles of the back, neck and shoulders;
- More flexibility, increasing range of motion and endurance;
- Relaxing the back and reducing pain.

Avoiding accidents and losing weight if you are overweight can also help prevent back pain or postpone degeneration of the spine and disks. Adopting good body postures and techniques is helpful as well.
