Back pain, particularly lower back pain, is something that plagues millions of people around the world. Whereas specific exercises can help to alleviate and prevent back pain, other exercises can make things much worse if done incorrectly.
It’s not that these exercises are inherently bad for your back. If done correctly, they can help build muscle and strengthen your body. It’s just that if they are done incorrectly without proper guidance and direction, the risk for injury is greatly increased.
