Movement can help relieve back pain, but only the right kind; workouts that put too much stress and strain on the back should be avoided. So which exercises should you choose? That partly depends on the cause and intensity of your pain, so you should always get the recommendation of your doctor before doing any heavy exertion for low back pain. Aside from exercises for your back pain, stretching is very beneficial to relieving the tension in your muscles as well. Some stretches include hamstring stretches, toe touches, butterfly sits, straddle stretches, etc. A couple exercises you can do at home include wall sits, partial crunches, knee to chest repetitions, pelvic tilts, bridges, cardio, pilates, etc. Getting a good exercise is very important to a quick and strengthening recovery. Call Dr.Christopher Cordima of The Advanced Pain Relief Clinic for any questions, anytime.
