Being active may reduce risk of chronic low back pain – Reuters

So many people around the world are suffering with lower back pain than ever before. With people going through more now than ever before, lifestyles lead to the cause. Whether it is because of health deterioration, weight gain, or even a bad diet causing this, being a person who regularly exercises, could help reduce pain, swelling, and injury. Exercise can help the body stay in a better physical and mental state of well-being than being sedentary will.

Key Takeaways:

  • In the past, it hasn’t been clear whether physical activity staves off low back pain, or people without back pain are more likely to be active
  • The researchers found that for moderately or highly active people, the risk of developing chronic low back pain was 14 percent and 16 percent, respectively
  • For acute or occasional low back pain, however, physical activity levels didn’t seem to make a difference in risk. The same was true of hospitalizations or disability leave related to low back pain.

“Regularly engaging in physical activity, from walking to intense exercise, may help to reduce the risk of chronic low back pain by as much as 16 percent, according to a new review of previous studies.”
