Exercise Helps Prevent Back Pain

Exercise helps prevent back pain! 

Recent studies found that combining exercise with professional guided education provides a 45% reduction in the risk for low back pain! Additionally, exercise was found to reduce sick leave time for low back pain by 78%.

Keep in mind, consistency is key! Researchers found that the risk reduction benefits of exercise for low back pain “disappeared” after 1 year, due to the individuals discontinuing their exercise programs.
