Independence is an important part of anyone’s life. You will work closely with your doctor to complete a treatment plan. At some point, the doctor will transition you into doing back pain exercises by developing a home exercise program for you.
Depending on the severity of the injury and extent of damage to your tissues, this may start very soon or occur later in the treatment program. It will not be started until the doctor feels that it is safe for you to do some unsupervised exercise. Back pain exercises that will increase your flexibility, strength and balance are a natural progression to giving you an independent life.
Strength and flexibility gains made during organized physical activity may be quickly lost if activity is not maintained.
