It's one of the of most important things you can do for your whole life

Strengthening your back muscles supports you in the here and now and goes a long way toward mitigating future discomfort from back pain. At our office in Milpitas, we focus on strengthening the back muscles as a means of supporting the spine, especially the segment in the lower back which is responsible for weight-bearing activities. Focusing on strength here allows you to minimize the toll that compression takes on your spine.

With an aging population, osteoporosis rates are likely to rise. 

Osteoporosis is a reality we all have to contend with: at some point in our thirties, our bones begin to lose mineral density and weaken. At first, this condition doesn't have any outward symptoms; however, if we don't take action, our weakening bones will leave us vulnerable to serious injury.

High-impact sports injuries, car and bike accidents are among the most common causes for whiplash- the injury in which your neck is whipped back and then forward, resulting in soft-tissue injury. The human body is a capable healer- if your injury is limited to whiplash, then it will probably be resolved in a matter of days, weeks or months. But what if there was another injury that was never diagnosed?

Depending on the type and severity of your back pain, it may be one of the only advisable activities for maintaining fitness without causing further stress to your spine.

Therefore, we often recommend swimming as a primary exercise for our patients with back pain conditions that are looking to improve spinal range of motion and reduce pain.
