Have you experienced back pain? You're not the only one. According to the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, over 80 percent of the population will experience an episode of back pain at some time during life. Here are a couple tips to get you BACK in the game:


Activity is often the best solution for back pain. However, it's important to prepare the body and mind beforehand. Injury prevention starts with off the field prep. The American Council on Exercise (ACE) recommends that exercisers engage in five to 10 minutes of warm-up activity before beginning a workout routine. Proper warm up increases blood flow to working muscles and preps your back for more intense movement.



Adding core strengthening exercises to your routine can help prevent future back problems. Your core is the center of your body, therefore needs to be strong enough to support the weight of your body, including your back. Remember that when exercising its not necessarily how much weight you lift, its how you do it. Proper form and posture will eliminate unnecessary strain on your back.
