Many of us know that in order to overcome Lower back pain or any back pain, exercise is almost a necessity. Unfortunately, very few of us are able to do any of these exercises because we tend to come up with too many excuses about not having enough time or not enjoying it. It is only after we have a difficult time with lower back pain that we come to the realization that we should have been doing the exercises all along. Now, we have to do them with the physical therapist and while we are in severe pain. If you would like to be able to strengthen your back and overcome some of the mild pain that you are experiencing before it becomes severe, you need to work on your core.
The core of your body is one of the most important parts for you to exercise regularly. It not only strengthens you so that your back doesn’t hurt so much, it helps to give your entire body balance and strength. There are a number of different exercises to do in order to help your core but some of the more popular include different forms of yoga, stretching exercises and Pilates. It is important for you to make sure that you choose a type of core exercise that you’re going to stick with for the long-term as it would really do you no good to exercise for a little while and then quit.
One of the reasons why it is so important to work the core of your body is because the core is not only in the front. The muscles in our core not only include the abdominal muscles but they also include muscles that wrap around back and help to support it. Have you ever seen somebody that lifts heavy boxes for a living? They wear what is called a weight belt and the muscles in our body actually form a natural weight belt which helps to support us and give us the strength that we need.
Once you build up the core of your body you’re going to notice a number of different benefits that come along rather quickly. One of the most pronounced benefits is the fact that your back is going to stop hurting on a regular basis. The extra balance and strength is also going to improve your ability to do many of the everyday tasks that you find yourself doing.
Wishing you and your back all the best 😉
