exercise, pain management
& everyday tips
Exercise is probably the best tool for managing back pain, and it is one of the few physical methods that can potentially improve your condition permanently. An immediate benefit of exercise is counter stimulation, which tends to reduce back pain. When you exercise you create sensations in the muscles, joints and other structures that may compete with pain signals for recognition by the brain.
Exercise builds strength and endurance, that will improve your ability to be active in the future, with less risk of pain or injury.
