Back problems have become a given among city folks all around the world because humans are just not meant to sit in front of a computer for 8 hours a day, at least not until we evolve to do so, and it's not like that's going to happen anytime soon. Granted, we do much more than just work when facing the screen all day long, from using mature singles sites, purchasing flight tickets, and ordering food to reading the news and shopping.

Neck problems, chest vertebra problems, and lower back pain are everywhere, and the most important thing to understand is that they are the adverse effects of our sedentary lifestyle. At the same time, the results of sitting for 8 hours a day, five days a week cannot be reversed by exercising later, no matter how motivated or skilled at pumping iron we may be.

Cutting back on the number of hours we spend sitting in a day is the first thing every single one of us needs to do, and once that happens, we can begin to work our way back to good spine health with the tips presented below.

1: Exercise with a Physical Therapist

If you’re in PT for your back pain, suggest hitting the gym together with your therapist. You can keep him or her company, and they can supervise your practice and change it up as your muscle groups get stronger.

They'll suggest a good cardio routine for you that will make you sweat but not be a burden to your weak spots, and don't even get me started on stretching with a physical therapist. Do you remember what a Swedish ladder is? Well, your therapist will refresh your memory rather quickly, and your motivation will hit new heights when you realize how easy it is to combine PT with regular exercise when you have the right person by your side.

2: Overall Gym Feel Matters

If you want to stick with your routine despite your back problems holding you down, your overall experience at the gym must be pretty satisfactory. You already have a legitimate reason to dread physical activity even though it is the only way to reduce your back pain, and don't need any more external downers, such as dirty showers or inconvenient hours.
Feeling comfortable once you enter the house of good pain ensures you come back, stick with your routine, and eventually live pain-free when your muscles, bones, joints, and tendons get so strong that everything stays in place for good and causes you no more pain.

#3: Attitude Adjustment

Attitude adjustment is vital if you want to be in as good a shape as possible. You're no longer exercising to have big arms, tight abs or a behind to die for. You're actually exercising for health reasons, which is the greatest reason and motivator of all, provided you don't talk yourself into feeling depressed because you have health problems.

It is what it is, and all that's left to do now is make sure they don't get worse and do everything in your power to reduce the symptoms and increase your quality of life. With an attitude like that, no amount of rain- or snowfall, fatigue, short deadlines or aching back is going to stop you from picking up your gym bag and heading out the door for a rejuvenating workout.
