Answers

Low-back pain, which is associated with the lumbar spine and sacrum, is a common complaint. A series of nerves and joint surfaces come together in this area that can become irritated if the tissues of the spine become misaligned or inflamed. All ongoing back pain should be evaluated by a healthcare professional before beginning an exercise program. Once a physician has cleared you for exercise, there are several options. The most important rule to follow is to let pain be your guide. That is, avoid moving in ways that provoke pain.


Often, moving the spine toward the end ranges of extension (back bending), flexion (forward bending), side bending, and rotation (twisting) will be painful for a person with back problems and should be avoided. Exercises that promote stability in the trunk by working the muscles that surround and support the spine make more sense for those with back pain. Also, low-impact, light- to moderate-intensity aerobic exercise, such as daily walking, is recommended because it helps blood (and therefore oxygen and nutrients) surround the structures of the spine to promote healing.
