Backache and Back Problems

The human back is an amazing collection of bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves, put together so as to be incredibly strong and highly flexible. Our back and spine were designed for movement, and from the beginning of time we’ve experienced the need to stretch.

But the demands of modern life, including poor posture and sitting for extended periods of time, at our desks, or in front of our computer screens, have contributed to a rapid de-conditioning of the muscles that support the neck, back and spine.

The facts speak for themselves: 80% of all people suffer from a back problem at some point in their life. Back and neck pain are two of the most common health problems today.

How will this app help?

Prevent Back Pain for Neck & Upper Back will help you learn a variety of exercises that stretch, strengthen, and stabilize important muscles and ligaments that support your neck and back.


This app contains a series of exercises and a workout which will help get you started on a consistent exercise routine that will ensure you maintain a healthy back. The app’s graphic illustrations show clearly which muscles are working during each exercise. Features include

A Quick Guide to explain the target, type of exercise, level, benefits and safety tips
Complete detailed step-by-step photos and instructions for the exercise
Full muscles and exercises search capability
Anatomical illustrations to show the major muscles that are being worked
Do It Right tips to advise on how to perform the exercise correctly and effectively

Each exercise includes step-by-step instructions, plus full-color photos and anatomical illustrations that let you see how the muscles work. You will “see” what muscles you’re targeting and learn how to avoid injuring them. It's a complete program that includes stretches, balance and posture exercises as well as warm-ups and cool-downs to get rid of your pain and regain the flexibility and strength.

Some exercises require a few simple props, such as small hand weights, medicine balls, and a Swiss ball, which is a large, heavy-duty inflatable ball, ranging in diameter from 18 to 30 inches.
