Exercises for low back pain.
This is a chart of some of my favorite stretches and exercises for low back pain. These exercises should be done lightly and not pushed to the point of increased pain. All should be done once a day
Healthy adults require at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise daily to maintain or improve their weight and heart health, according to the American Heart Association’s guidelines. However, having a sore lower back impedes your ability to do high-impact exercise. The additional shock to your muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones can worsen your condition. Choose lower-impact cardiovascular activities to burn fat effectively and stay safe. Follow these exercises for low back pain. If your lower back pain persists, speak with your Virginia Beach Chiropractor..
The following is a statement made by Dr. Ray Wilbur former president of Stanford University and The American Academy of Medicine.
“New treatments make use of heat,cold,water,electricity, and specific manipulations. They bring biological responces more potent than many of the drugs gathered through the centuries by trial and error. Medicine based on pills and potions is becoming obsolete. The medical profession will profit by recognizing this new concept, and must insist that its schools promptly mold instruction to conform with the new knowledge of body mechanics.”
This was true in 1977 when it was written and even more so today.
