5 Reasons Why a Back Pain Rehab DVD Will Help Me

Suitable for any age

While it's rare that children and young adults will suffer from back problems, due to their bodies being much more flexible and resilient, you're never too young, or, indeed, old to embrace good habits and take preventative action against future back pain. The simple exercises featured on this DVD are suitable for all ages.

Strengthens your core muscles

Core muscles tend to be overlooked in an average person's workout and are seldom used to any serious degree in everyday life. The concern here is that abdominal, pelvic and the muscles surrounding your lumbar spine are liable to weaken with age and an underdeveloped core is at the root of most back problems. With a course of straightforward exercises, specifically targeting these muscle groups, you can avoid complications further down the line.

Reduces the risk of injury

The most common causes of back injury— particularly in over 50s— are standing up too quickly, lifting heavy objects or simply moving the body in a sudden or irregular fashion. The reason for this, is that when a person attempts one of these actions, certain muscles need to 'fire' in sequence in order for the movement to work effectively.

Through a past trauma or stress, it's possible that a muscle in the sequence will have stopped firing, causing nerve endings to fail, thus inducing back pain when the movement occurs. By following the work-outs shown in this back exercise DVD, with precise attention to your core muscles, you reduce the risk of injury.

Improves recovery time after an injury

There're many factors which contribute to a speedy recuperation after an injury. Diet, sleep, physiotherapy. Combining these measures with a simple, low-intensity work-out routine, designed to help posture, core strength and flexibility will vastly decrease recovery time after a period of debilitation.

Improves mobility and flexibility

The exercises in this DVD won't just reduce the risk of back injury— through improved core strength, posture and body alignment— they'll also help develop flexibility and mobility. A number of these work-outs focus on building strength and elasticity in the hamstrings, gluteals and other leg muscles inherently linked to lower-back problems. By targeting these areas, you won't help but notice the improved flexibility, both in your exercise routines and day-to-day life.
