The 7 Exercise Myths Causing Back Pain Talk

The 7 Exercise Myths Causing Back Pain
“It is only when the damage accumulates that we seek help to make better exercise choices.”

In this informative talk, we want to provide you with the information to make better choices when choosing exercises, so that you can avoid those that damage your back and to exercise without causing pain.

There are exercises that weaken and exercises that strengthen our backs, and in our youth we seem to “get away” with avoiding back injuries but only for so long! So as we get older we must make smarter choices to select the correct exercises to keep our backs working for longer.

There are many misconceptions about how you should exercise, and many personal trainers who continue to give out exercises based on old ideas that are not effective and more importantly not safe. At Nottingham Chiropractor we provide exercises based on years of experience and a firm grounding in the anatomical structures and biomechanics of the human body.

In “The 7 Exercise Myths Causing Back Pain”, we cover the following topics, plus a Q&A session at the end to address your concerns and questions:

  • Exploration of the 7 Myths: debunking exercise myths to avoid injury
  • Know your anatomy: what can go wrong with your discs
  • The real truth about the safety of situps and crunches
  • How to move effectively and safely: the simple squat
  • Safe exercises to work your abdominals
  • Why the elderly fall: how to prevent falls
  • Patient stories: hear what our patients’ have to say
