Strengthening the muscles that support the back helps dissipate stress on the joints of the spine and prevent injury. Losing weight takes stress off the joints, which can also reduce and prevent back pain. Exercise has also been shown to strengthen bones by stimulating bone growth.
Pain can have different causes. Mechanical back or neck pain results from damage to the structures of the spine. These include the vertebral bones, intervertebral joints and discs, ligaments, muscles and nerves. Physical medicine is more beneficial when treating this kind of pain. Non-mechanical back pain resulting from underlying pathology such as an infection.
