Much of the country is having an early spring. Which means that lots of folks are already underway with projects such as digging in the garden, cleaning gutters, clearing attics and basements and so forth. In other words, people are doing activities their bodies are not used to and, unfortunately, tweaking their backs.
Don't wreck your spring by plunging into projects your body isn't ready for. We have a new back pain exercises video here at pilates.about.com that will show you a few very simple exercises you can do to warm up your back and start getting your abdominal muscles in shape to support your spine. When it comes to back pain, a little prevention is a whole lot more fun than having to take on a back recovery program!
