It’s an all-in-one solution for keeping you active and keeping your back strong and pain-free.
The Three Cornerstones of
Preventing Back Pain
Every year, half of the working adults in American will have an issue with back pain, and together we will spend over 50 billion dollars addressing back pain issues.
The fact is that most of these cases can be prevented or minimized by making a few lifestyle changes. Regular exercise can stretch and strengthen muscles, keeping your body loose and strong and healthy.

What many people don’t realize, including a lot of back pain sufferers, is that underworking back muscles can be as bad as overworking them.
Back muscles, along with the “core” muscles of the abdomen, pelvis, and hips, need to stay strong to take pressure off of the discs and vertebrae of your spine. The bellicon is particularly good at building up core muscles, those in your abdomen, hips and torso, which are the ones responsible for supporting your back.
A gentle, low-impact workout on the bellicon is a great way for back pain sufferers to relax tight, overworked muscles and strengthen them at the same time.
Back pain can also be caused by the bone loss associated with osteoporosis and osteopenia. The weight-bearing g-forces produced by rebounding are just what your body needs to build and strengthen bones and prevent these diseases. It will also keep your discs and joints loose and flexible, generating the fluid circulation your discs need to absorb nutrients and stay healthy.
Easy does it
For back pain sufferers, The Mayo Clinic says that “Regular low-impact aerobic activities — those that don't strain or jolt your back — can increase strength and endurance in your back and allow your muscles to function better.
Studies continue to show that moderate-intensity exercise, not pushing yourself to the limit, is the best way to achieve and maintain body fitness. This is especially important to remember for anyone with a history of back pain.
Rebounding also improves your balance and posture so that your back stay in alignment. Bouncing on the strong, pliable surface automatically engages your brain and inner ear, improving “proprioception,” your body’s awareness of its position in space. Like other brain functions, this ability increases the more it’s used, so the more rebounding you do, the more you’ll find your balance and posture improving.
If you are suffering from chronic or acute back pain, you should check with your doctor or medical professional before beginning any new exercise program. In many cases, it’s also best to let a temporary bout of muscular pain subside before beginning to exercise so as not to aggravate the condition.
