If you have back pain, don’t shy away from physical activity! It is very human to think: I have back pain I shouldn’t move or I will increase the pain. This is wrong, this is false logic. To have a healthy back you need strong muscles and flexibility.

Movement is the key !

Engaging in regular exercise is actually beneficial, as it helps to stretch and strengthen your back muscles, as well as improve your overall flexibility and strength.

However, high-impact sports such as tennis, football, and horse riding should be avoided, as should running. Instead, try low-impact activities such as brisk walking, yoga, Pilates, tai-chi, or even swimming. These activities can help you strengthen your back muscles and reduce your risk of experiencing back pain in the future.
