When you suffer from back or neck pain, the common response is to lay down. But prolonged bed rest can actually cause the back muscles to weaken and make activity even more painful. That's why it's important, in order to keep your recovery progressing, to keep some semblance of activity.
Continue your customized exercise program daily to help strengthen your back and prevent future pain. Remember, never do any exercise that causes you pain. Should any pain occur, stop at once and call your Spine Team Texas physician. More resource information on exercise used as prevention to back pain, click here.
