Lower back pain is one of the most common problems in the world. You will not find one single person who does not complain of having severe or mild back pain, at least to the majority of people. Common causes are work-related, especially those that require each person to bend or sit for a long time. Other disorders, such as scoliosis, can also cause back pains. When a person does not have a good build (no toned muscles), usually, this person will also suffer episodes of lower back pain. Accordingly, back pain can be caused by so many factors, almost every one is at risk of having one.

Doctors and therapists recommend exercise as the best way to manage lower back pain, unless otherwise prohibited. Exercise is, no doubt, one thing that everybody should do. Not only does it relieve or prevent back pains, it brings many health benefits. If there is a risk of developing complications or causing more harm to the person, exercise is contraindicated.
