picture of happy man back pain free from exerciseNo lower back pain? You're 50 years old? You feel great? Want to stay that way? Think about doing 15 minutes of exercise a day to prevent back pain. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is here to support you when you hurt, but we also recommend you to do what you can to take care of your spine.

And in that vein, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic shares this new research article that touts mild, home calisthenics, ones that improve balance-muscle strength to prevent lower back pain in 50 year old healthy working people. (1) Sounds great! As a side benefit to lower back pain prevention, the researchers even hypothesize that respiratory function improvement may be connected to posture improvement. It's a win-win situation.

So what might you try in the form of McHenry lower back pain exercise? OrthoIllinois Chiropractic agrees with the researchers that the key word is mild. You don't have to become a gym-rat or a muscle bound athlete. The research paper's authors focused on balance-control and low-back-musculature strengthening. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic does, too. Take into account some simple lower back exercises like the pelvic tilt and pelvic lift. Add some stabilization ball exercises for balance. And the outstanding part of the study and its recommendations? Just 15 minutes a day generated results.

So, contact OrthoIllinois Chiropractic. We'll discuss first what exercises might be appropriate for you and your lower back pain prevention plan. Our McHenry chiropractic clinic is your lower back pain prevention and relief ally!
