If you're like the rest of us, you've probably noticed that daily life can sometimes take a toll on your back. If you're not hunched over a computer keyboard for hours, putting a strain on your neck and upper back, you might be challenging your spine and lower back muscles with more physical work and a full schedule of everything from lifting toddlers and hauling groceries to home maintenance and playing sports. 

We ask a lot of our backs. They do much of the work involved in keeping us upright, on the go, and productive throughout the day, and they deserve a good, regular dose of TLC. To help keep your back strong and standing up to the strain — or to help you recover from back-related injury or illness — regular stretching and exercise are important. 

Simple, Quick, Effective

The best kinds of exercises are those that you'll actually do, so it's important to find routines that are fast, effective, and uncomplicated. Keeping your back in good operating condition is mostly a matter of ensuring that it remains mobile and flexible, and that the muscles involved are kept strong.

An effective back exercise program doesn't need to take a lot of time or involve the use of expensive equipment. Best of all, just a few simple routines will usually be enough to pay off. And it's an investment that will deliver dividends for the rest of your life.
