Lifting something heavy may be the last thing you feel like doing if you’re suffering from back pain. And back pain experts have long been warning us about the dangers of lifting excess weight.
But, when carried out properly, weight lifting can actually help to reduce back pain.
Our Stoke on Trent chiropractor explains that strong, healthy back muscles can help to keep your spine moving as it should and promote good posture. If your back muscles are weak, you could find yourself prone to back pain.
Of course, this doesn’t mean you should hit the kettle bell classes at full throttle or attempt to become the next Arnie Schwarzenegger, but it will benefit you to focus on improving your overall body strength. Strong back, core and leg muscles will encourage a healthier spine.
Remember to always consult your GP or health care professional before starting any new exercise routine.
