What are the best exercises for back pain?

The first exercise for back pain is to strive to listen to common sense by consulting a doctor before starting workouts. This is not a routine advice, but a real recommendation, designed to ensure that there are no contraindications to sports.

Anyone who is approaching these exercises for the first time is advised to consider the idea of rely on a qualified personal trainer, so that he can follow him in the executive practice.

The exercises proposed in this article represent a general indication useful only for cases of back pain due to weakness or excessive muscle contractures (where back pain is a consequence of herniated discs, protrusions or other problems with the intervertebral discs, it is essential to contact to a doctor expert in the field and follow his instructions).


Stretching exercises against back pain

Often, those who follow a specific program to improve back health do not give the right importance to stretching exercises. This is most likely due to the fact that these stretching exercises constitute the final part of the session, thus resulting, erroneously, a physical activity of the session of secondary importance.

In fact, the role of these exercises is nothing short of fundamental. In fact, to prevent back pain, it is important to regain lost elasticity without limiting attention to just improving muscle strength. This type of training allows you to relieve tension and improve the elasticity of the paravertebral and lumbar musculature. Especially in the first period, when the inflammation and pain have not yet completely resolved, physical activity should be based almost exclusively on unloading and decompression exercises of the spine.

The proposed exercises do not require special tools and can be performed both in the gym and at home.

WARNINGS: always perform a general warm-up before starting the stretching exercises; wear comfortable clothing that does not impede movement; choose a relaxing environment and respect the correct breathing technique; avoid sudden movements and excessive stretching.
