<bCauses of Back Pain</b>

Before we understand about the exercises to relieve back pain, we should
have an understanding of human spine and possible causes of back pain.
Human body depends on the spinal column for structural stability and
mobility. It is the spine which provides us the necessary support to
bend, twist or move around. The spinal column is made up of 24 vertebrae
which are placed one on another from the skull to the pelvis. The spinal
column is tightly wrapped by muscles and ligaments. Now any type of
injury in these muscles or ligaments can result in pain. You can rectify
or reduce such back pains by carrying out proper back pain exercises.

<b>Exercises- The Safest Cure For Back Pain</b>

Backache usually is a result of the spasm of muscles supporting our
spine. This occurs due to improper posture, or sudden movements or jerks
or repetitive actions. Diseases such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis,
viral infection, and bladder or kidney infection, gynecological problems
in women, tumors and trauma can also cause back pain. Excess body weight,
wearing of improper shoes and carrying heavy weights can also result in
back pain. The best remedy for backache occurring from these reasons is
back pain exercises. This is mainly because exercises to relieve back
pain are safe and free from any possible side effects that is a
possibility with other treatments for back pain.
However, back pain exercises may not prove to be effective in cases where
the pain is not caused by an improper posture or sudden movements, jerks
or is accompanied by bowel or bladder control problems. In such cases, it
is advisable that the person suffering from backache consults a physician
and gets a proper treatment.

The best way to avoid back ache is to maintain a proper posture and keep
your muscles well conditioned by undertaking proper back pain exercises.
One should never bend at the waist or stoop to pick up an object.
Instead, we should lower our body to the level of the object by bending
our knees.

The most common back pain exercise is to stand straight or sit on a
comfortable chair that provides adequate support to your back. You should
avoid sitting or standing in a single posture for a long time. Even while
sleeping, you should be careful as to the type of mattress being used.
Slouching or leaning forward should be avoided at all times. Yoga and
mediation go a long way in relieving back pain and are very good
exercises.

Prevention, it is said is the best cure for back pain. You can avoid
backache by undertaking back pain exercises on a regular basis. These
exercises strengthen the muscles in the abdomen and the spinal area and
ensure that there is adequate support to the spine. Wall slides, leg
raises and leg swings are the best exercises and abdominal strengthening
exercises prove to be effective in toning up our back muscles.
