Studies have shown that resistance/strength training is not only safe for people with back pain, but it can help to relive pain and improve function, when done properly. Numerous studies found that exercise programmes of 8 weeks or longer of free-weight based exercise resulted in a significant improvement of pain, disability, and quality of life for participants with low back pain! Muscles of the hips and legs play a large role in the mechanics of our back and spine, therefore building strength in these muscles will have positive influences in lower limb injuries and back pain.
Benefits of strength training:
- Decreases the likelihood of future back and lower limb injuries
- Will help to stabilize your spine, allowing your spine to move as it should and also making it easier to maintain proper posture
- Increases muscle tone
- Improves body mechanics
- Helps build bone—a significant benefit for people who have osteoporosis or are at risk for developing it
The aim of these sessions is to build back, core, hip and leg strength to enable you to move more functionally with less pain. These sessions will be structured in a circuit format with a full warmups and cool downs and correct, safe techniques of each exercises being demonstrated and monitored throughout the sessions. The sessions will include a mix of weighted/resisted exercises and bodyweight exercises, and there will be an emphasis on improving back and hip mobility also.
