Having chronic pain can interfere with many activities and your quality of life, but exercising can help prevent this!  Research has shown that exercising can improve bone health and strengthen muscles which can prevent chronic back pain, and diseases such as osteoporosis. The following are examples of exercises that we recommend and that you can do at home! **Before exercising, make sure you consult with your doctor or other health care professional. **

Walking:

Talking a brisk walk of 30 minutes for about 5 times a week can not only improve pain, but also help with low back and hip pain. Walking helps strengthen leg muscles and bones and can improve overall posture.

Stretch Exercises:

Stretching can help relieve tensions and stress in the muscles. It can also improve your range of motion. Here are a few stretch exercises:

  • Hamstring stretch
    • Sit on floor and have both legs straight out

    • Stay in this position for a few seconds
