Water exercise can be great for your back. It strengthens muscles and increases joint range of motion. Here is a short, simple water exercise routine to get you going.

First, warm up your water exercise session with water walking:

Put on a floatation belt, the most basic aquatic exercise item. The belt will keep you from sinking if you go in the deep end. Then walk around the pool to warm up your hips and legs, and give you an aerobic workout, too. The warm up should take between 5-10 minutes.
