Top ten Exercises and Stretches for Lower Back Pain

Back pain execises

Back pain is the most common issue we see as physiotherapists.
Exercises for lower back pain are something else that should be included regularly in your daily routine, particularly if you are experiencing pain or stiffness …
A physiotherapist will help determine the root cause of the problem and set out a specific program tailored to your needs to ensure you get the best outcomes for you.
Back pain can easily be put down to the ageing process and although there is some truth to that, the amount of stiffness you feel does not have to relate to how old you are.
As you age, the fluid that lubricates joints decreases, cartilage thins and muscles tighten, however there can be other factors at play when it comes to back pain and stiffness.
  • Dehydration can lead to stiff muscles. Muscles are active tissues, which means they’re the kind of tissue that require the most water in the body. So be sure to drink enough water.
  • Inactivity is another culprit leaving your muscles sedentary for a prolonged period (sleep, sitting in a chair, driving for hours etc.) can cause them to stiffen so try to keep moving.
  • Stress causes our bodies to tighten up with prolonged stress leading to a tight posture and strain on the muscles.
