About half of teenagers experience back pain, which is most commonly caused by tight or weak muscles that put extra strain on the spine and pelvis. At Children’s Hospital Colorado, we can help with a daily exercise program targeted at strengthening core muscles. Exercising core muscles for 10 to 15 minutes, five days a week can help prevent and greatly reduce back pain. To learn more, visit: https://www.childrenscolorado.org/spinehealth
