Exercise / Fitness

Whether you’re doing heavy squats in the gym or just going about your daily routine, chances are you’re going to experience back pain at some point in your life. This is most commonly the result of a bulging or herniated disc and although symptoms worsen with age, its progression can be slowed or even prevented. Sports medicine experts at Atlantic Sports Health recommend daily stretching and low-impact exercises, such as yoga or Pilates, to strengthen the lumbar region of the spine.
