Getting Back Workout
As some of you know, I hurt my back about two years ago. I went through chiropractic care and physical therapy as part of my recovery process. These two practices are very different but both helped heal my back and work well together. Though my chiropractor and PT might not agree with each other's practices, I have found them to be a great combo for healing the body.
I am only going to talk about PT therapy. You see, while on my road to recovery, I met Jamie Glick MS, PT. Jamie is a New York State licensed physical therapist and a graduate of Columbia University’s Program in Physical Therapy. Though Jamie did not personally work with me during my healing process, I was impressed with his ability to work with me and star in dozens of health and exercise videos in partnership with the Livestrong.com website.
Now he offers a book and a podcast to help people recover from back pain and pain relief. I am a firm believer in education. With education, you can learn how to heal yourself through whatever means you find suitable for your body.

Jamie also practices what he preaches regarding keeping a healthy lifestyle. He makes daily smoothies in his Vitamix with whatever fruits and vegetables are around the house and has been known to go out for a quick 16 miler before the sun comes up during marathon training season. He boasts completing 17 full marathons, including 5 New York City Marathons. His best time is 3 hours 37 minutes, and he hopes to one day qualify for the Boston Marathon.
These two stretches will do more harm than good, or just no good at all.

Arching Backward Really Hurts.
Arching Backward Really Hurts. Jamie says only do this one if you like pain.
As a last note, I want to stress the importance of using a PT if you have an injured back. PTs can show you ways to get around without causing more injury and lessen the pain. Good luck.
