Thought I'd share some great info!

Exercises that may help reduce or prevent low back pain include:
  • Aerobic exercise, to condition your heart and other muscles, maintain health, and speed recovery.
  • Strengthening exercises, focusing on your back, stomach, and leg muscles.
  • Stretching exercises, to keep your muscles and other supporting tissues flexible and less prone to injury.
For lots more info follow the link provided.
Hope that helps!
