There are many types of exercises that therapists use. These exercises can be used together to target specific back conditions.
Strengthening the abdomen is a primary goal for recovering from lower back pain. By tightening the abs, bracing is established and is foundational for all other exercises used in stabilizing the lower back. After bracing is controlled, the patient can progress to other exercises.
Back strengthening, stretching and neck exercises can all lead to reducing back pain and more mobility. A large part of physical therapy is educating the patient on what may be causing the pain and what to do about it.
In general, exercise is necessary to healthy living. Older people generally do not get enough exercise and physical activity. Exercising can help patients feel better and improve quality of life. It can also lead to improving diseases and other conditions and relieve depression. Overall, exercise will lead to a healthier and enjoyable life.
