Exercise for Lower Back Pain is part of the treatment and also part of your rehabilitation. Once your acute pain has settled it is time for rehabilitation. This is when we focus on the underlying factors that have caused your back pain. Exercise is a key element of almost any lower back pain treatment plan. An exercise program will be developed and taught by a spine health professional. It will include three components: aerobic conditioning, stretching, and strengthening. The exercises are best done through a controlled, progressive program, with the goal of building toward a stronger, more flexible spine. Clinical Pilates or clinical strength classes have been proven to be an excellent exercise program for many patients who wish to commence a rehabilitation program and avoid future pain flareups.
