Back Exercise: Making Your Back Work for You

No matter what we do during the day, all of use our back muscles when we’re sitting, standing, lifting, reaching, carrying, or lying down. A back injury can result in pain, disability, and even loss of income if it prevents us from doing our jobs. Together with proper lifting techniques, back exercises are one of the most important things each of us can do to strengthen our backs and help protect them from accidental injury and sports injuries. The right back exercises, when done on a daily basis, can help you to keep your back fitness at the best possible level. Remember, though, if you are experiencing back pain of any sort, check with a healthcare professional before doing these or any exercises, and do the exercises according to the medical advice rendered by that professional.
