Research has shown that people with lower back pain see one major disadvantage in self-help programs. The disadvantage is the lack of supervision of a physician. The research shows that people appreciate online self-help programs very much to do independent exercises! What should you be careful of?
What should you be careful of if you don’t want to get back pain? Here is the top 5:
1) Avoid stress in combination with sitting still for a long time in your job. It’s not for nothing that there are so many people with back pain in office life!
2) Beware of leisure stress. Does this exist? Yes, this exists. Many people experience a certain pressure during leisure time that they have to do a lot of things. This results in a cramped posture. Let it go!
3) Not enough exercise and movement.
4) A one-sided load on your body. For example, are you walking to work every day with your suitcase? A backpack is better for you. Do you still want to use your suitcase? Carry the suitcase alternately left and right.
5) A bed that is bad for your back. Make sure you lie well, on a good mattress!
Think of a few situations without back pain. Can you remember driving a car or sitting at the dining table without back pain? You will suddenly realize how important the exercise program can be for you. That means you’re ready for the next step.

Causes of back pain
The cause of low back pain is often found in an irritated muscle or tendon after a period of strain on your back. Back pain can also be the result of a problem with the intervertebral disc. Think for example of osteoarthritis, or sudden sharp pain caused by a tear such as spit and herniated disc.
3 underlying causes
Often 3 things in the background play a role in lower back pain. First of all, stress often plays a role. Because of this, your body is a bit cramped for a long time and not in the most healthy position. Secondly, a lack of movement is often a cause. Finally, small events can play a role in the intervertebral discs. This may have to do with the facet joints of your vertebrae.
What exactly is the situation with your vertebrae?
The vertebrae of your spine are separated by intervertebral discs. They are connected by joints. These joints allow the vertebrae to move relative to each other. The vertebrae hinge together through two facet joints per vertebra.
Facet joints exercises
Due to an incorrect posture, the two joint surfaces of a facet joint can no longer lie neatly opposite each other. Such a facet joint does not ‘trace’ very well then. This makes your spine less mobile. In addition, some movements are painful. Doing exercises gives relief. Think especially of mobilizing exercises. These are exercises with which you can get the facet joints in line again.
Why the exercise program?
1. Bed rest does not help!
According to the guideline, bed rest does not help against lower back pain. Bed rest is only recommended if this is the only way to control back pain. The guideline also states that pain in the lower back is not harmful. Also, an increase in pain does not go hand in hand with damage to structures. So you can easily stay active. In fact, dosed movement promotes the recovery of your back.
2. Treatment for low back pain
The standard treatment for lower back pain consists of explanation and reassurance. In addition, the advice is to remain active, with possible pain medication and exercise therapy. Unfortunately, remedial therapy by a physiotherapist is currently not covered by the basic package.
3. Exercise stimulates recovery
According to the guideline it is important that (in normal course) people with lower back pain are encouraged to expand activities. Exercise and being active promotes recovery. It is important to build this up as well as possible. So don’t start exercising intensively right away, but build up your activities quietly.
Research shows that practicing helps against back pain. So do you have low back pain or morning stiffness and do you want to get rid of it quickly? And do you want to reduce the chance of a return of back pain? Then it helps to do the right exercises against back pain. Your back becomes stronger and more mobile.
How do you practice in a good way?
The best way to practice against back pain is to practice in a controlled way. Ensure a gradual build-up. In other words: make sure you have a routine in performing your exercises. This will best help to reduce stiffness and strengthen your back. Through the routine you learn, you strengthen your back in a responsible way. You reduce the chance of a return of back pain.
You have come to this website. So you want to do something about your back pain. Then I assume that you want to get acquainted with even more exercises.
Exercises for people who sit a lot
The majority of lower back complaints can be solved by a good posture and the right exercises against back pain. You can practice more often than you think. For example, do you often sit at a desk? Then you can also do exercises against back pain.
Push yourself up slightly from your seat. Leave your back hanging relaxed. This relieves the pressure on your intervertebral discs. You notice that you feel pain relief. Make sure your chair has firm armrests.
A second exercise from a sitting position is tilting the pelvis. Place your feet on the ground and push your buttocks into the back of the chair. Stay on the chair and make your upper body as long as possible. Now you are going to tilt the pelvis. First forward, then backward. Notice that your back becomes hollow and convex.
Do you find it difficult? Then place your hands in the side, on top of the pelvis. Your fingers at the front, on the protruding bones of the pelvis. Your thumbs point backwards. This way you feel the pelvis tilt. With your hands, control the pelvis slightly during the movement. This way you are aware that the pelvis actually tilts.
