Low Back Pain Exercises for Temporary Relief Throughout my experience over recurring low back pain (which started since I was in grade school) and from reading lots of researches pertaining to back pain, I have found out (and I am not alone in this discovery) that close to eighty percent of back pain attacks cease after 1 month up to three after the onset. 

While the lower spine and the neck are intended to allow us for greater mobility, the thoracic spine is designed to protect the internal organs that the section covers and to help the framework of the body to hold itself in its respective postures. Because this section of the spinal chord are created for limited movement and more stability, it's susceptibility to injuries and degeneration is much too less when compared with what the lower back is facing. 

Yet there are exercises and activities that create the possibilities for lower back pain instead of decreasing its intensity. Many people suffer from this problem and this is the exact reason why one, they are prohibited from exercising and two, they are discouraged from doing such. A number of studies performed only recently shows that people who are vulnerable to lower back pain must concentrate on improving the strength in their lower back via a productive lower back exercise. 

Studies point out that back pain during pregnancy is most likely to occur during the fifth or the seventh month of pregnancy. As it may be observed, this is the period when the womb bulges, enough to create additional heavy load to the woman. However, there are cases when back pain may activate as early as the 8th and 12th week. 

Oftentimes, the sufferers and even the physicians themselves are not certain of the actual site of the pain's origin. Since lower back pain radiates into the other sections of the body, people tend to become unsure of how to provide initial relief on themselves and how would doctors diagnose the condition. 

Symptoms may vary from muscle ache to excruciating pain, inability to perform things or limited range of activity and postures. Majority of the back pain may be caused by trauma on the lower part of the back bones. Trauma is the result of too aggressive movements associated with house works, sports activities, injuries, sudden jolts and stresses on the ligaments or the spinal bone.
