When done in a controlled, gradual, and progressive manner, active back exercises distribute nutrients into the disc space and soft tissues in the back to keep the discs, muscles, ligaments, and joints healthy. Consequently, a regular routine of lower back exercises helps patients avoid stiffness and weakness, minimize recurrences of , and reduce the severity and duration of possible future episodes of low back pain.
Pull ups are one of the best back exercises you can do, so if you’re not a member of a gym you can either improvise (think jungle gym, etc.) or you can get yourself a pull-up bar for your home.
A typical response to experiencing back pain is to take it easy - either staying in bed or at least stopping any activity that is at all strenuous. While this approach is understandable and may even be recommended in the short term, when done for more than a day or two it can actually undermine healing. Instead, active forms of back exercises are almost always necessary to rehabilitate the spine and help alleviate back pain.
Physical therapists who use movement, back pain exercises, strengthening and conditioning, and who encourage gradual increase in activity, are usually most successful.
