Sports For People With Lower Back Pain?
Good evening doctor, I was diagnosed with “lumbar vertebrae osteophyte”. I experience pain in my lower back / hips. I weigh 95kg with a height of 175. And it is recommended to lose weight. What kind of exercise can I do to support my diet / lose weight. During this time I was quite active in the mountain. But the doctor suggested to stop biking … Thank you in advance, may the doctor be able to help answer my question.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com.
Sports that aim to lose weight due to lower back and hip pain, are generally non-weight bearing (not focusing on weight), such as:
1. Swimming: swimming can be done for patients with complaints of pain in the lower back or hips, because it is non-weight bearing (does not rely on body weight)
2. Static cycling: the recommended bikes are static bikes, not recommended bikes that are far away because it supports body weight.
3. Aerobics: Aerobics is also recommended for weight loss.
These sports can be done at least 3-5 times a week, every time 30-50 minutes with a total exercise time of about 150 minutes per week.
In addition to exercise, to support diet or lose weight, you can also adjust your diet to reduce fatty foods, high cholesterol, high sugar, and increase consumption of vegetables and fruit.
So hopefully useful :)
