Did you know that an estimated $50 billion dollars is spent annually on back pain related issues? It affects nearly 80% of the U.S. population at one time or another. It’s one of the top reasons for physician and physical therapy visits and one of the most common reasons for missed work days. The best training plan in the world won’t do us much good if we’re unable to implement that plan due to pain and/or injury.
When reviewing research or anecdotal evidence online, there is no shortage of articles, blogs, and opinions regarding low back pain (LBP). But what about a specific resource for the athlete, the weightlifter, the CrossFitter or the runner who is experiencing low back pain during exercise? How does an athletic population know how to handle episodes of LBP? What specifically can an athlete or active person do to avoid low back pain to lessen the risk of injury and lost training days? Is there a specific step-by-step plan that really works?
The prevention and rehabilitation strategies outlined in my rehabilitation guide, Treating Low Back Pain during Exercise and Athletics, answer those questions. You will learn how to safely self-treat your low back pain and helpful methods for a speedy recovery. (Not to mention, possibly saving you time and money by avoiding a physician visit!)
The good news is that participating in sports, running, CrossFit, and weightlifting doesn’t increase your risk of developing LBP. On average, being in good health, physically fit, and active actually decreases your risk.
