Exercise for the Back


The primary goal of any exercise programme should be to make your back stronger so that it can support the spinal column, these can be undertaken at home and don’t require any special equipment.

The exercise programme should be to make your back, stomach, hips and thighs strong and flexible. The exercise programme can include walking, cycling, swimming and jogging.

Your doctor or orthopaethic surgeon can recommend the length of the exercise programme using around 10 to 30 minutes a day or even a stepped approach starting with 5 minutes per day and building up over time.
