About 80 percent of adults experience low back pain at some point in their lifetimes. Men and women are equally affected by low back pain.
In the old days bed rest was prescribed if your back was flared up whereas today it is recommended to keep moving, keep exercising.
These exercises work by stretching out muscles that are normally tight when you have lower back pain and strengthening muscles which tend to be weak during your acute phase. There are many reasons for having lower back pain, so it makes sense to get checked out by a physical therapist.
