I know how frustrating it can be to work out when you have back pain.  I also know how hard it can be to workout so the back pain won’t come back again.  In today’s post, I want to share with you exactly how I personal train someone with a history of back pain.  It has been extremely effective.  In fact, in my 14 years of personal training, I can say that I’ve had more success with this method than any other I’ve used in the past.  After you watch the video, I’d love to hear what you think.  If you have questions, fell free to add them to the comments section below.  I promise to answer every question in as much detail as possible.


What questions do you have about back pain and exercise?

  1. I have lower back ache history. I consulted my physician and undergoing the physical training since last 4 months. Doing PT helped me significantly but the strain on my lower back and in neck still exists. My basic sessions of PT are over since a month from which point onwards my physiotherapist promoted me onto TRX program and Rip training program. The back pain originally started after i finished doing 3 months of Insanity (by Shawn T) program. I was never able to figure out if Insanity was the thing that resulted into back pain or was it something else. Could you please advice me if TRX and Rip Trainer are the right things for me to do? Additionally, i would also appreciate if you let me know how long does it take to get rid of this back pain completely. I am also doing the regular work outs like boxing on punching bag, cycling, push ups and pull ups.
    I will keep following your articles as well. Those are really helpful. Thank you so much.

  2. Hi Sagar,

    Thank you so much for the great comment. We would be glad to answer your questions the best we can.

    There is a chance that the high intensity program caused your back pain, but it’s hard to give you a definite answer on that without more information from you.

    The TRX and Rip trainer can be ok to use if used properly, and at the right time for your condition. Using it when your body is not stable enough to handle it could cause an increase in back pain.

    The length of time it takes to reduce or eliminate back pain depends on the situation and your diagnosis. All of our programs are taken in 4 week increments. We typically see great results in that period of time, and then we re-evaluate the client at the end of the month to determine our next steps.

    I hope that helps you some, but calling us would allow us to give you more detailed information. Would you mind contacting us at 281-500-6055 or contact us via our webform: http://www.medicalfitnesspros.com/contact
