Exercises for Back Pain


The imbalances in your core muscles can cause back pain. Core muscles include all the muscles from shoulders to hips. These exercises will help you increase the flexibility of your core muscles and diminish the imbalance between them so that they support your spine better.

Stand upright and curl backwards as far as you can until you feel strain. Hold your position for 3 seconds and return to your initial position. Repeat the activity 5 times.
