Being Active Reduces Risk of Chronic Low Back Pain

According to a new review of previous studies, regular engagement in physical activity from moderate to intense levels can help to reduce the risk of chronic low back pain by as much as 16 percent. Chronic low back pain refers to pain that lasts for three months or more.

Dr. Joel Press, a physiatrist-in-chief at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York mentions “We were meant to move. We were not meant to be stagnant in any way, so I think this study does confirm that. It’s a big study where they looked at a lot of people,”

A good starting point could be walking which is a relatively low impact activity. Swimming is also advisable as it puts less load on the back.
