Exercise Best For Low Back Pain, T.E.N.S Not Far Behind

TENS units such as the TENS 7000 are one of, if not the best way to relieve low back pain, but researchers have found that exercise is a perfectly comparable method of preventing repeated lower back pain in the year following an episode. A review of 21 studies involving more than 30,000 subjects – published in JAMA Internal Medicine – found that any kind of exercise (core strengthening, aerobic exercise, or flexibility and stretching) decreased the risk of a new episode of low back pain between 25% and 40%. Lower back pain is “a universal experience. You’d be a really uncommon person never to have had an episode of back pain,” physical therapist, health researcher at the University of Sydney in Australia, and lead researchers Chris Maher said. “It’s a common problem across the whole of the globe,” he says, whether it’s North America, sub-Saharan Africa or rural India.” – See more at: https://go-telehealth.com
