When we think of our back and spine, most of us think of measures we can take to avoid experiencing discomfort or injury. However, there is still much you can do to strengthen your back that will help you avoid injury and back pain. That way, you can be proactive in your wellness plan instead of reactive.
Read on for a few tips for strengthening your back.
Engage Your Core
Engaging your core muscle group is essential to vitality and physical fitness. Pursue the exercises that work your midsection for improved mobility and drug-free pain relief.
If you're able, do pull-ups, which are excellent for building your back. There are also assistance machines if you have trouble pulling up your body weight.
Do Low-Impact Exercises
Running is great cardio, but it really takes a toll on your back. Instead, opt for the elliptical machine or even take your workouts to the swimming pool for less pain and less wear and tear on your back and joints. Swimming also builds essential muscles in your back.
If you have lingering pain even in the face of your new back-strengthening routine contact Espinosa Family Chiropractic today to schedule a consultation.
