How to Exercise for a Better Back

By Genevieve Cunningham

There’s almost nothing worse than dealing with ongoing back pain. It just makes everything harder. Work is more difficult. Exercise is more difficult. Life in general is more difficult. Unfortunately it seems as though backaches are common. In fact, it’s likely that every person will experience back pain at one point or another. So what can you do to avoid the discomfort and the difficulty that these pains bring to everyday life? It may all be in your care routine. If you’re interested in keeping a healthier back, take a look at these exercises that specifically target this area.


You have undoubtedly heard just how good this exercise is for the body. You’ve heard that it brings massive benefits to both physical and mental well-being. But have you tried it? When you finally get up the nerve to give it a try, you’ll probably also notice that it strengthens and loosens the back and neck. Over time, this can create an environment that creates less pain, and one that releases current sore spots. If you want something that is challenging, calming, and can last through the years, yoga is the place to begin.

Strength Training

The body really needs strength training. The muscles need to be challenged in order to stay strong and to grow. And it’s important to remember the back muscles in this process. Make sure that your strength training routine includes exercises that focus specifically on the back, and perform them on a regular basis. This helps build support for the spine, which ultimately leads to less pain and suffering.

Water Workouts

Water workouts can feel so good. The buoyancy of the water makes the body feel weightless, which then removes the tension that builds, and thus removes the pain as well. Water workouts come in all shapes and sizes. You can hop in for a swim, use water weights, join a water aerobics class, or make your own workout. If you need a workout that soothes the back and strengthens it all at the same time, getting in the water is a solid choice.

Don’t Forget to See the Chiropractor

Along with engaging in a good exercise routine, chiropractic care can help keep the back strong and pain-free as well. Chiropractors use gentle manipulation to remove joint restrictions from the body, improve the health of spine, and boost general health. When it comes to back pain and general spinal health, there’s truly nothing better. Add this and a solid exercise program to your normal routine and your back will quickly gain health and lose pain.
