It is well known that exercise is one of the best ways to control many types of body pain and medical issues.
A strong and healthy body can even reduce or eliminate the need for many types of medication over time. It can control weight, boost the levels of the ‘good’ HDL cholesterol and prevent metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes.
Physiotherapy works to strengthen and heal the body. The techniques are useful after injury or illness to rebuild weakened tissue. A person with lower back pain or injury can often find relief with the help of physiotherapy.
Healthy Body, Healthy You
Today’s more sedentary lifestyle has led to a number of ailments that can reduce your quality of life. Diseases such as type 2 Diabetes, heart disease and even depression can be helped with even a moderate level of regular exercise. Just 30 minutes several times a week in a gym will do far more good than you may have ever believed.
Harvard and Stanford Universities recently finished a review of over 305 studies with nearly 340,000 participants. They found that there was no statistical difference between those who used drugs and those who used medication for such ailments as pre-diabetes and heart disease. For some illnesses, such as stroke, regular exercise was found to be far more effective. Overall, the studies suggested that a workout is better for overall health than any pill.
Strong Core, Strong Back
Exercise helps to rebuild the core muscles of the back. Weakened core muscles are one of the major causes behind most types of lower and middle back pain. In fact, there is a direct correlation between a strong set of abdominal muscles and a lower level of chronic lower back pain.
Focused workouts for back pain help the entire body. Programs involving Pilates and physiological stretches and exercises will strengthen and tone the core muscles. When combined with even a low level of aerobic exercise, such as walking, you will see increased blood flow and feel better overall.
