Reduce Back Pain With These 10 Easy Exercises
Have you ever lifted a heavy object with your back rather than your legs or reached for an object in the wrong way and hurt your back? Chances are you probably have, and you’re not alone.
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), as many as 8 in 10 people will experience some form of back pain within their lifetime. In the United States alone, more than 26 million men and women aged between 20-64 experience frequent back pain and it is also the leading cause of disability among Americans aged 45 and younger.
Often times back pain can be over diagnosed or even misdiagnosed. Due to the frequency of back pain a simple search would find several sites with home remedies for back pain. In the past, rest was often recommended for back pain. Today, however, many specialists are recommending light exercise and activity.
While it is important to visit the doctor for frequent and chronic back pain, sometimes a few simple exercises can do the trick. According to founder and owner of GB Personal training, the following are some easy, low impact exercises that are known to reduce back pain:
- Yoga Squats
- Partial Crunches
- High Step
- Deep Lunges
- Forward Leg swings
- Hamstring Stretches
- Wall Sits
- Decompression breathing
In addition to exercise, we recommend utilizing SmartCells anti-fatigue mats, flooring, runners, or our new line of Zelus Insoles to help reduce and prevent back pain.
SmartCells anti-fatigue products are ergonomically designed and engineered to prevent and reduce pain associated with standing for extended periods of time. The unique SmartCells act like springs that cushion as weight is applied and then rebound when the weight shifts, which returns energy and reduces fatigue.
SATECH’s anti-fatigue products are built with industrial quality and combine features such as beveled edges and stability with style and elegance that blends perfectly in any room in the house. The SmartCells line of anti-fatigue rubber mats come with an industry-leading 8-year warranty and are available in three different surface options (smooth, basket weave and carpet top) as well as three colors (Black, gray and light brown) and three sizes (2X3, 3X5 and 24X68).
