Our Top 3 Exercises For Back Pain!

1. Swimming

Water based activities are fantastic for rehabilitating injuries. This is because of buoyance. Buoyance allows the body to feel lighter hence less pressure on joints and sore areas will enable better movement through the water. General swimming or water aerobic exercises as simple as moving the lower and upper body through the water will help to achieve a reduction in overall tension within tight muscles.

2. Yoga/Pilates

Engaging in exercises that help strengthen and lengthen muscles are always going to be a great exercise for both rehabilitation and helping to reduce tight muscles. If there is pain during the exercise it should be stopped as the risk of re injury is greater. There are many different exercises and techniques that can be done to help decrease low back pain. It is indicated that starting with gentle exercises and building up into bigger movements overtime will help strengthen the body long term!

3. Walking/Running

Any type of walking or running whether it is brisk or up and down stairs will be a great way to start your fitness journey. It is an easy way to get out of the house away from the desk and requires no equipment for you to do it. It is a great low impact exercise that can help increase mobility and loosen tight muscles. Walking is also know to have benefits with back pain sufferers as it provides movement to the area of concern helping to mobilise the hips.
