Spinal problem and back pain Is there any relation to GYM??

I have got back pain from 2 weeks. I am working out at gym but still this does not seem to go. Now I am worried if this turns out to be something serious. Because I have heard that even spinal problems cause such issues. Is that the case with me.

Hi.. The usual cause for the back pain is the bad posture and physical exercises during the pain can actually worsen the pain then helping it. So i would suggest you to have rest then do strain yourself.. If the symptoms persist then you need a physical examination.. Do not take it lightly as this been a recent problem and it can turn out to be a major concern it left alone.. all the best..

hi,thanks for query.Lack of proper care during exercise can lead to back problems and can also aggravate the present one.Please avoid doing any exercise till you get your self properly examined by your doctor.You have not mentioned your age,if you are young the reason for backache could be mostly due to bad posture,visit your doctor and get treated.
wishing you good health.

Usually it is muscle pain and will be relieved with exercise. You will need to do stretching exercises to get it off. Also do not do exercises that strain your back. Follow normal posture at work. Because we usually sit and work for long hours and this pain will be from the bad posture only which we rarely notice.
