The truth is, exercise is essential for back pain sufferers especially who are overweight but certain exercises are harmful while others are crucial to help them slim down and feel better.
Dr. Anita (a chiropractor and personal trainer) is an expert in lower back pain and exercise who has teamed up with her husband, Don Parker (expert fitness trainer in Livermore, CA) to help people with low back pain exercise safely to combat their problems and weight gain.
Here are a few tips they offer:
1.Always keep your stomach tight. Every time you bend forward or backward, sit for lengths of time or change positions, keeping your stomach muscles contracted will protect the lower back spine and minimize pain and injuries.
2.Breathing with movement is a key component to burning fat and calories. Many people who exercise get so focused on doing the movement that they forget to breath! Certain breathing techniques will maximize the efficiency of fat burning and getting quicker results.
3.Stretch the muscles while you strengthen them! Flexibility is the secret to your age. The more flexible you are, the younger you are and the slower your body and spine will degenerate. Many exercises can be strengthening as you stretch.
