Back Pain – Core Exercise Recommendations

This rear view of David
clearly illustrates Michelangelo’s
skill. His knowledge of the human
form has recorded the muscular
form of the shepherd boy with

Despite the ever-growing array of equipment that promises to build ‘six-pack’ abdominals and defined back muscles, the typical person does not do not enough back exercise and abdominal exercise, either in everyday activities or even in exercise sessions.

That is unfortunate, because the back muscles and abdominal muscles, sometimes referred to as core muscles, tend to weaken with age unless specifically exercised.

More importantly, strong back and abdominal muscles can help heal most types of back pain, especially the most common form of back pain caused by soft tissue injury or back muscle strain. Consequently, exercises that strengthens these core muscles should be a part of a balanced back/abdominal exercise program.
