Make Time to Move

You may not always feel like taking the time to exercise, but it’s been proved to help prevent back pain.

You’ll also be more flexible and less likely to injure your back. The exercises in the following slides are intended specifically to prevent back pain. You should talk with your doctor before you start any new exercise routine.
