In the last blog posts about back pain, I broke down the three different areas of your spine and explained how “back” pain is sometimes in the upper part and sometimes it’s in the lower back.
Most people ask me about if stretching can help and the next most common question is this:
“Is it ok to exercise when my back is hurting? I’ve just got into a good routine sticking to the gym and working out, and I really don’t want to stop”.
I get the frustration.
It’s hard enough to get started but you succeeded, started to get into your routine, and now someone tells you to stop because of the back pain and potential risk related to it. I also know that the thought of doing any movement at all when you’re going through some kind of pain might feel a little scary. That is a normal reaction true to anyone who doesn’t want to willingly cause any harm to their body.
