Most generally if you are suffering back pain your first response will be to stop activity and maybe just lay in bed, however, almost every chiropractor in Brisbane will tell although that response is very understandable and is often recommended as a short term treatment, when done for more than a couple of days, it can actually take away from the health of your back. Instead a chiropractor more than likely will recommend certain types of back exercises to help rehabilitate your back and spine to help alleviate the pain.
If you carefully follow the directions of your chiropractor, you can do back exercises that are controlled, gradual and done in a progressive manner. By doing these types of exercises you will be distributing the nutrients needed by the disc space and soft tissues in the back to heal. This regular routine of back exercises are meant to help patients avoid any stiffness or weakness to minimize the recurrences of back pain and also reduce the severity along with the duration of the back pain.
It will depend on the diagnosis the doctor or chiropractor in Brisbane gives and the severity of the pain on what kind of back exercises will be given to each patient, so it is very important that the patient receive the right individualized program of back exercises and be given proper instruction on how to do them.

A balanced back exercise workout will also include a combination of stretching, strengthening and a variety of low impact aerobic conditioning all of which will help the back regain it's strength and help the back pain to lessen and eventually go away.
