Why don’t you make this year the one where you do something about it! With most of us now working from home again and the cold weather discouraging us from exercising outside, maybe we need to think about what we can do from home.
Low back pain is a problem that 70% of us will suffer from at some point in our lives. Poor posture, poor lifting techniques and our sedentary lifestyle all have a part to play in the problem.
The best thing we can do is encourage good quality movement and control of the muscles supporting our spine.
We have put together a series of 3 videos to get you started with some back strengthening and stretching exercises designed to help reduce, manage and improve low back pain.
Incorporating a regular gentle exercise programme into your daily routine can really make a difference and you will be surprised how easy it is. I always think January is not the month to start withdrawing the nice things in life, it is hard enough already! However, why don’t you try this for the remaining 3 weeks of January and see how much better you feel when February arrives.
