I’M IN MY 50S AND HAVE Q RE­CUR­RING BACK PAIN THAT LAYS ME OUT FOR DAYS. WILL RUN­NING HELP? An­thony Bar­ratt, Ed­in­burgh

Trail Running (UK) - - Training -

Back pain is such a sub­jec­tive con­di­tion that it’s A im­pos­si­ble to know the best route for­ward with­out know­ing the cause, sever­ity and other fac­tors. There are, though, cer­tain steps you can take. “I would cer­tainly ad­vise you to in­crease your mo­bil­ity and flex­i­bil­ity, con­cen­trat­ing on your glutes, hips, quads and lower back,” says Jonny. “The im­pact caused from run­ning may be un­likely to help re­lieve pain, how­ever. A trip to the physio would be my best ad­vice for now.”
