No lower back pain? You’re 50 years old? You feel great? Would you like to keep it that way? You can help do that with only 15 minutes of exercise a day to prevent back pain. Carlson Chiropractic is here to help you when you hurt, but we also suggest you to do what you can to care for your spine.
Along that route, Carlson Chiropractic shares this new research article that touts mild, home calisthenics, ones that grow balance-muscle strength to thwart lower back pain in 50 year old healthy working people. (1) That’s fantastic! Another advantage to lower back pain prevention, the researchers even speculate that respiratory function improvement may be linked to posture improvement. It’s a win-win situation.
So what should you try in the form of lower back pain exercise? Carlson Chiropractic agrees with the researchers that the key word is mild. You don’t have to turn into a gym-rat or a muscle bound athlete. The research paper’s authors focused on balance-control and low-back-musculature strengthening. Carlson Chiropractic does, too. Think about doing some simple lower back exercises like the pelvic tilt and pelvic lift. Add some stabilization ball exercises for balance. And the terrific part of the study and its recommendations? Just 15 minutes a day created results.
