3 Reasons You Need to Strengthen Your Back

By Virginia Laird

There is a great debate when it comes to strengthening the back. Some people believe it to be irrelevant unless a person suffers with back pain. Research suggests that back pain can actually be caused when the muscles of the back are weak. Fitness instructors and personal trainers across the country teach that when working on the abs, it is equally important to work on the back. A few benefits to strengthening the back include:

  • Strong back muscles support a healthy posture
  • Strengthening the back can prevent back pain
  • Secure stability of the spine with strong back muscles

Strong Back Muscles Support a Healthy Posture

Far too many people struggle with correct posture, which can lead to other health issues. Research suggests that poor posture can be directly linked to poor health. Strengthening the muscles of the back is one sure way to improve a person’s posture. Chiropractors recommend those who use poor posture should try stretches and exercises that both strengthen the back as well as the entire core and promotes healthy posture.

Strengthening the Back can Prevent Back Pain

People who lack strong back muscles can have more issues with back pain than those who work to strengthen their back muscles. When a person uses correct posture, it helps to prevent and manage back pain, which may come as no surprise. Chiropractors have long discussed the pain and spinal damage a person may experience when lacking a strong back, some of which cannot be undone. 

Secure Stability of the Spine with Strong Back Muscles

As many may already be aware, the spine is a fluid part of the body, constantly shifting with the body’s movement. It is vital to make certain the spine gets the support it needs to maintain a healthy, functioning, unrestricted position. This can happen as a person strengthens the back muscles. Strong back muscles can provide some protection to the spine, helping to prevent unnecessary movement and shifts.

If you are someone looking for a way to prevent or manage your back pain, it could be time to consider strengthening the muscles of the core, especially the back. Before jumping into any program which may be physically demanding, it is important to visit with your chiropractor. Start by visiting The Joint Chiropractic in Lakewood, where no appointments are necessary, making your care as readily available as you need it to be.
