If you have a back injury, you are going to be in a lot of pain. I once fell down the stairs at work and ended up with a back spasm that would not go away. I had no idea that something so simple could be so painful. I ignored the pain at first, but it got to be so bad that I had to finally give in and go to the doctor. He told me that I was lucky that I had come in when I did because it wasn’t the type of injury that was known to go away on its own right away. He had to do a few things to my back, and he gave me a list of back exercises to do to help strengthen the muscles.
The muscles in my back locked up into a spasm and would not loosen up. They were holding my spine out of place, and those things combine were causing my pain. I had my back put into place a few times with the help of some muscle relaxants and a good chiropractor, and then I had to do the back exercises. One I found out what was wrong and how to fix it I was feeling much better within two weeks. The back exercises were rather simple, and they really seemed to help.
Sometimes when we exercise we forget about doing back exercises. We concentrate on other areas and the muscles in our back are not what they should be. That might be why so many people have problem with their back going out. If you do back exercises, you are going to have a strong foundation to keep your spine in place when you injure your back, or bounce down the stairs like I did. You don’t have to make them a priority when you exercise, but you do have to do them.
However, if you have a good all around workout program, you may already be doing plenty of back exercises without knowing it. A good all over program will have you covered. If you are worried that you are not doing enough back exercises, look some up online to see what you can add to your routine. Though they will not keep your back from getting injured in all cases, they can help lessen the severity of something if it happens. The smaller injuries can be avoided altogether.
