With the end of winter finally in sight, many of us are thinking about getting our bodies in ship shape for the change of season. If you suffer with back pain, spring and summer can take its toll on your emotional and physical well being. You know the picture – everyone seems to be enjoying fun activities in the sunshine and you’re battling chronic pain. But did you know that one of the best ways to manage your back pain is by exercising regularly? According to our Southend chiropractor, if you want to reduce your back pain in time for summer, you should start exercising now!
Exercise is absolutely essential when it comes to maintaining a healthy spine and rehabilitating an injured spine. A basic routine that focuses on stretching and strengthening the back, hamstrings and abdominal muscles will help to distribute nutrients into your spinal discs and soft tissues. This will then accelerate your healing process and keep your discs, muscles, ligaments, and joints healthy.
No one wants to be laid up during the sunny seasons, so get moving and move pain out of your life this Spring and Summer!
