More Facts about Exercise & Back Pain

FACT 9 RUNNING ON THE ROAD & SWIMMING THE BREASTSTROKE ARE NOT BAD FOR BACK PAIN.

Scientific research does not show that any of these activities are bad for your back or ‘wear out’ your joints.

The amount of exercise you do is more important that the type of exercises. Any amount you can manage will result in benefit, but more than 30 mins a day would be ideal.
