A big reason why people are using resistance bands to train and workout is because they are very effective in relieving muscle and joint pain as well as the preventing injury.  For those who are already experiencing back pain using Kbands resistance will help improve flexibility and mobility.  If you have ever used free weights you know the pain that can be involved.  Kbands, KB PowerBands, and KB Duo make it possible to work the muscles, ligaments and tendons to relieve aches and pains without the setback of causing injury.  When a person is unable to move freely because of back pain they feel miserable.  Stretching and increasing blood flow in the legs and core using Kbands resistance is a great addition to back exercises and will help alleviate pain and help you feel better.  

A lot of people sit at a desk all day and do not exercise regularly so their muscles tighten.  Their bodies are not prepared for the action because they are constantly in an unnatural position.  Shoulders slug, head drops and backs arch for long periods of time causing tightness.  The body was designed to be upright so posture plays a huge role is back pain.  

Agonizing back pain is both annoying and miserable.  Daily stretching with Kbands resistance applies natural force to build muscle strength.  Many people who go to physical therapy for back pain are finding that resistance exercises are key in rebuilding injured muscles in the back and for alleviating back pain.  Simple stretching while using Kbands resistance leads to improvement in muscle strength.  The impact resistance back exercises have over exercising without resistance is substantial.  Muscles that are primed for action are less likely to be injured.  Anyone can pull the muscles of the back or strain their back so performing resisted exercises with the back flat and the head neutral in alignment with the spine will improve range of motion and flexibility. There are so many muscles in the back. It is very important to keep them moving through full range of motion to prevent tension which leads to back pain.
