Strengthen your core and lower body with this routine so that you can help reduce chronic pain. This routine is ideal for completing at home. If you start now and do it daily or every second day you will feel a massive improvement in the health of your back.
There are many reasons why a person could be experiencing back pain. However, it usually comes down to pushing too hard at the gym, not exercising enough, or a previous injury. If you experience a trauma to the back at some point in your life then it’s also easy to assume that you shouldn’t exercise or strengthen much in case you make it worse. Unfortunately, doing nothing will only make it worse. Your back and core muscles need regular strengthening to support your body in daily activities.
Lower back pain is very common. In fact, 80 percent of American adults suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. According to the American Chiropractic Association, there are about 31 million people currently struggling with back pain. Apparently, back pain is the third most common reason people visit the doctor. It is also the second leading cause of missing work.
There’s a long list of reasons why your back might be hurting. It can be the result of a sprain or strain. Or, you might have a herniated disc or fracture. In that case, you need to seek the help of a doctor. But most of the time, the culprits include daily habits like poor posture, slouching while seated at your desk, and lugging a heavy purse on one shoulder. The main reason is not taking the time to strengthen your body. Instead of pills or surgery, the solution is exercise.
