Got a Back problem? We’ve got your “back”….

Unfortunately, most of us suffer from back problems.

However, just because that maybe you, it doesn’t mean you can’t workout anymore. As a matter of fact, there are a lot if exercise you can do. Check out this article written by Sarah Ketterman from Live Strong giving some examples of those workouts.


Work Out Routines for Those With Back Problems


Back problems frequently occur due to mechanical dysfunction, or problems with the way your spine moves. Underlying causes of mechanical back pain include disc degeneration associated with aging, herniated discs, muscle spasms, weak abdominal muscles and muscle tension. Medical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis also cause back problems that lead to pain. Tears or sprains in the ligaments supporting the spine can occur when you lift or twist improperly. Frequently, the reason for your back pain will identify the best exercise routine for you. For instance, those with osteoporosis should generally avoid high-impact sports like jogging to prevent fractures of the spine.


Exercise Types:


Writing for Spine-Health, Dr. Vert Mooney recommends people with back problems include a combination of stretching and strengthening exercises, along with aerobic conditioning in their exercise routines. Strengthening and stretching should involve the muscle groups that support the spine, including the abdominals, oblique and gluteal. Mooney also advises sufferers to use low-impact activity such as water aerobics, walking or bicycling for overall conditioning. Those with chronic back problems might benefit from seeing a trained physical therapist or other exercise professional for help in choosing appropriate routines and guidance on performing the exercises properly.
