15 Outdoor Hobbies  for People with Bad Backs

If you're anything like me, I'm sure back pain has robbed you of countless fun memories. Whether it's planning a short uphill hike with friends or enjoying a bowling game on the weekend, you know you'll be lying on the couch later with a stiff, aching back. But how long will we let this chronic pain seize all the fun? This time, let's take the fun back - one activity at a time. Here's a list of 15 outdoor hobbies for people with bad backs.

Swimming

Swimming or any activity involving water is highly beneficial for a bad back. It is a low-impact exercise that strengthens muscles without risks. This is because water creates resistance while relieving the body of pressure at the same time.

Walking

Don't be surprised - to date, walking is one of the most effective ways to curb back pain. As a matter of fact - many of us wouldn't be looking up for this article if we had included walking in everyday routine a few years back.

Hiking

If you're looking for something more intense than a walk, why not try a hike? Or go for a run? Depending on your back situation and fitness level, choose a more leisurely or more demanding hike.
