Exercising to Avoid Back Pain
Amir Mahajer, Interventional Spine Specialist at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center, gives some tips to prevent back pain, like using bodyweight or gravity resistance exercises to start and then you can talk to your physician about exercises and have some guidance in Pilates or Yoga.
As a specialist, Mahajer focuses on what the patient is doing, what they were doing before the pain and what they want to get back.
He also says in his office it is very common patients with kinesiophobias, that is when somebody is afraid to move, to bend, or to walk because they twisted one time and the pain was severe. That is why it is important to see a doctor in case of a back pain.
