Back pain is a common problem for adults, and it can make everyday activities difficult. Depending on the cause of your pain, exercise can help reduce or eliminate it.

Research shows that nearly 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. It usually first appears between the ages of 30 and 50, but the risk of back pain increases as you get older.

The most common causes of back pain are injury or disease. These can include overuse (repetitive movements), accidents (falls), degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, and osteoporosis. A sedentary lifestyle is also a major risk factor.study in the journal Applied Ergonomics found that there is a link between sitting time and chronic back pain.

There is always a cause for back pain. Contrary to popular belief, back pain is not always unexplained. With proper evaluation, the cause can usually be identified.

The cause of back pain is usually specific. It is not something vague. The pain may be worse with certain movements, lifting weights, or maintaining a certain posture. However, the patient can also find relief through specific movements, postures, and appropriate loading. A properly trained personal trainer can help most patients reduce or eliminate back pain by designing a personalized exercise program.

  • Get enough sleep. Sleep helps your body to heal and repair itself.
  • Manage stress. Stress can worsen back pain.
