You don’t have to stop exercising when your back aches.
While you might associate chronic back pain with athletes or people who work out every day, sitting at a desk from 9 to 5 or regularly lifting heavy objects can both contribute to a sore lower back. Chronic back pain may also stem from conditions like degenrative disc disease, arthritis, and spinal stenosis.
While it’s tempting to simply forgo all exercise when your back aches, you can and should stay active as long as the pain is manageable. You will, however, have to modify your workout routine to incorporate activities that put less stress on your spine.
To maintain an exercise routine while you deal with back pain, consult Dr. Malone, Dr. Wernicki, or Worth Keville, PA-C at Pro Sports & Elite Rehab. They can diagnose the problem and suggest ways to ease your discomfort. Book an appointment today.
