Back Pain: Most Often Rest Just isn't Enough..

Back Pain … usually associated with aging and being in poor physical shape right? Well the truth is back pain can happen to anyone at any time! Take it from me, I am a 22 year old personal trainer that exercises, participates in mobility and corrective exercises daily, but I still damaged my back doing something as simple as picking something up.

My point is back problems can occur at any time. It doesn’t really matter how you hurt it. It matters how you are going to deal with it and move on.

For those of you that have experienced back problems it can be scary, every little movement hurts, you can't sleep because you are uncomfortable. The last thing on your mind is exercising right? Believe me when I say this, exercise is the best thing you can do for your pain. Something you need to understand first. Your back pain isn’t going away overnight, and taking 3-4 weeks off doing nothing won’t speed the process up either. That being said, here is a list of things you can do to help speed up your recovery process.
