Need To Learn A New Method To Relieve Back Pain?

The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body & Fitness “ I Need To Learn A New Method To Relieve My Back Pain!” Does It Start With Building A Stronger Core? If you suffer from an aching back or even neck pain, weakness in your core muscles can be to blame. Do you have to sit for long periods at a computer, in the car, or are you just not that active anymore? All these positions can lead your core muscles to become weak. Even if you exercise regularly, unless you target your core muscles, you can cause an imbalance in your muscle strength, straining your back and putting you at risk for injury. A prime example of how important core muscle strength is to protect against back pain was shown in a study with 443 firefighters that were put through

core strengthening routines. Over a 12 month period, those firefighters had 62% less injuries than the group who did no core strengthening exercises. When your core is strong, it means your spine is better protected against injury when you twist, lift or strain your body doing an activity. “ Most any type of exercise can reduce your risk of low-back pain by between 25% to 40%. ”
