Exercise Prevents Back-pain Recurrence

15 Nov

Supervised exercise reduced the chance of a repeat episode of back pain by 45% over a one-year period. Shoe orthotics and back belts were almost useless. And the type of exercise did not matter, some programs focused on back muscles, while others combined aerobics with strength and balance training. Patients generally did two to three supervised exercise sessions per week. But the protective effects wore off after a year, probably because many people stopped exercising when they were no longer being closely supervised.  Troubling:  About 75% of people who have an episode of debilitating lower-back pain will have another within one year.
