Spine exercising is essential to protect the health of the spine. This type of exercise is able to
cure spinal deformities as well. The goal of back strengthening exercise is to condition the muscles to better support the spine and withstand stress, which can lead to back and neck pain relief.
Most back strengthening exercises focus on the core muscles, including the abdominal, gluteus, and hip muscles, in addition to muscles surrounding the spine. All of the core muscles are essential in supporting and minimizing strain on the spine. However, unlike muscles in the arms and legs, core muscles do not get much use during typical daily activities. To build strength in core abdominal and back muscles requires exercises that focus specifically in these muscle groups.
Back-strengthening exercises can result in:
-Reduced stress on the spinal discs and joints
-Better spinal alignment and overall posture
-Ease with movements that may cause pain, such as bending, twisting, or lifting
In most cases, strengthening exercises are recommended 2 or 3 times a week, and as part of
an overall program of stretching and aerobic exercise.
