A poorly conditioned or weak back is at greater risk for overuse injuries, especially among individuals who spend most of their day behind a desk.
This video provides workplace exercise tips to help maintain a healthy spine. While any type of aerobic exercise will strengthen the muscles in your lower back, one great way to improve muscle strength is to stand at your desk with your left knee bent at 90 degrees. While grasping your ankle with your left hand, hold your leg for approximately 10 seconds, and then repeat with the other leg. See a demonstration in this clip.
