Proper back pain exercises are a life-transforming tool for back pain sufferers that will make more of a difference to your sense of well-being than anything else – including the best food, the greatest sex, the most exhilarating fun. The only catch is that you have to do it to reap the benefits.
If you’re like most busy people, you already have too much to do. There isn’t room in your day for even 15 minutes of stretching and strengthening exercises, let alone the 45 minutes to an hour, three times a week that would satisfy the aerobic exercise requirement of this program.
I’m going to help you find the time – somehow – because, again, I am confident that back pain exercises will prove more beneficial to you in the long run, for your lower back pain treatment, than any other approach you can try.
But before you tell me that you really don’t have the time, I can promise you that committing a comparatively small amount of time to exercise could be your insurance policy against the next time you might have to call in sick to work because ‘My back has gone out again’?
If time is money, then the time you invest in exercise, which costs you nothing, saves you whatever amount of time and money you could conceivably spend on chiropractic, osteopathy, massage therapy, and so on – the next time your back muscles seize up and lay you low.
What’s that? You say you’re already running so flat out that you can’t give yourself enough sleep at night, and so you’re tired all day? That’s no excuse, either. As you’ll see, exercise, especially regular aerobic exercise, will change the way you feel, every minute of the day. Instead of depleting your energy, as you might suppose, exercise actually gives you more energy. Even though it burns up calories and cuts through fat on your body, it doesn’t make you tired. On the contrary, exercise makes you feel more alert and alive – and because you tend to sleep better when you exercise, you’re likely to find that you feel more rested even when you spend fewer hours in bed.
