Oh yes, you can. Of course each case of back pain requires individual solutions. But there are a great number of resources available for any back pain sufferer who chooses to be pro-active and help get rid of the pain and its source. Moderate exercise, back strengthening and other measures can in most cases effectively help you overcome your pain. The sooner you resume sports and your daily activities, the better. If these measures will not help, ask for an evaluation from your doctor. Being in pain for a longer period of time can take a lot of energy, be stressful, and can have negative effects on your psychological wellbeing and the immune system. The sooner you forget the misconception that back pain is some sort of handicap that you have to accept, the better.

“you Will Never Get Back Pain because You Are Active.”
Unfortunately, this is not true. Even with exercise, there is no guarantee. Even good sportsmen can suffer from or get occasional back pain. But if you stay in good shape, pain episodes will be less intense and less frequent. If pain reoccurs constantly, then you should better see a medical professional. Generally, it is recommended to stick to an exercise programme, including strengthening training and stretching for all muscle groups as effective prevention against back pain (see our video library for suitable exercises).
“i Can't Do My Favourite Activity anymore.”
Untrue. Fortunately, most lower back pain isn’t chronic, but limited to a certain period of time. So it is only matter of time before you will overcome it. Be pro-active about it! The sooner you start moving again, the sooner you will be fine.
