Here’s Why Walking Uphill Reduces Back Pain
Your hip flexors tighten up after you sit for too long. Having tight hip flexors can cause you to experience back weakness, stiffness, and pain. Walking uphill is one way to ease back pain because it stretches your hips joints while strengthening your back muscles.*
Work your way up to 20 minutes of walking four times a week. Take your time challenging yourself to walk uphill, gradually taking on steeper inclines as you get stronger.
