Keep Your Core Muscles Strong

Your core muscles play an important factor in maintaining a healthy spine. They help to stabilize and support your spine. Some exercises you can do to strengthen your core muscles are yoga, pilates, and planks. Abdominal muscles help to prevent back pain by maintaining proper spine curvature and a neutral pelvic tilt. When your abdominal muscles contract, pressure is increased on your abdominal cavity which helps to lift weight and pressure off of your spine.
