Q. Sometimes I can barely stand or sit. Is walking on treadmill something that can benefit? Can someone post back strengthening exercises they have used for muscle fitness while trying to relieve muscle tightness. I suffered a back muscle problem a few months back and I haven't quite been able to heal properly. It seems to me that my back muscles tighten up a lot and even cramp up.
