The Benefit of Back Exercises


Back exercises are often prescribed effectively as an alternative to surgery. Doing daily back exercises can significantly reduce back pain related to a variety of common ailments. However, not every exercise is appropriate for some conditions and certain back exercises may even make the problem worse. This is why it's important to check with your doctor about which exercises will help or hinder you.

One of the simpler back exercises that you can do is a pelvic tilt. Lie on your back with your feet flat and knees bent. Keep your legs together and cross your arms over your chest and then you are going to tilt your pelvis and push your low back to the floor. Slowly lift your buttocks off the floor as far as you can without straining your muscles. After maintaining the position for about 5 seconds, slowly lower your buttocks back to the floor.

Of course there are many other back exercises that can help strengthen your back and alleviate pain, you will just need to experiment to see what your back can handle. If an exercise doesn't make you feel better, or worse yet, causes further back strain, then you should move on to another exercise that is better suited for your particular back problems. If you can avoid surgery by alleviating your pain through exercise then you will not have wasted a moment with back exercises. Working with your doctor or physical therapist to reach that goal is certainly going to be in your back's best interest.
