Dispelling some back pain myths for you all... A common misconception is that you should rest when experiencing back pain. The truth is that the more scientific research we have done in recent years shows the opposite to be true. You should keep moving, avoid movements or exercise that deliberately aggravates the pain, but you should load the injury. It really is very essential for the rehab process. Hands on treatment helps manage pain, but it can't give long term relief unless something changes - strength being the key! Pain does not mean further injury, pain does not mean your body is broken.
Deadlifts are commonly feared and have long been blamed for causing injury, they are a fantastic way of strengthening the hamstring and back extensors! Don't fear the deadlift, just perform it with good technique and gradually load the spine.
