FOR DETAILED LOWER BACK PAIN EXERCISES and STRETCHES:
The Exercise Page contains photos and detailed instructions for many common lower back pain issues. These exercises and stretches are easy, short and safe to perform.
You may have pain from simple activities such as sitting, standing, bending or lifting for long periods. Your hips and hamstrings may feel very tight and can cause back discomfort. Perhaps, you have issues with pain in the morning, spasms, stiffness or also disc or soft tissue injuries. Some of you may already be interested in looking for exercises to help with your pain. Hopefully, you are in search of more information on what you can do to address these areas of concerns. Please read further and explore the many links in this site for help.
Many issues related to back pain are a result of muscular and joint imbalances that can be self-corrected through specific movements, stretches and exercises.
The program that is encouraged here is designed to teach the value of the proper use of your muscles and joints, specifically your leg muscles, hip flexors, back and abdominal muscles. The correct use and function of these muscles are vital to maintaining much needed flexibility and stability of both your joints and lumbar spine.
When these areas are not given adequate exercises, stretches and movements, their function and performance declines. They progressively lose their ability to provide much needed help and support while performing everyday tasks. Over time, the spine must sometimes perform beyond its ability and compensate for the lack of movement from the other essential muscle groups and joints.
It then takes on a greater workload and endures longer durations of stress. Other less vital muscles are also recruited to perform. These muscles do not have the ability to perform these tasks as well and therefore begin to fatigue. This results in strain and injury to both the muscles and lumbar spine due to improper use, over use, imbalances and weakness.
To prevent such injury, these 'protective' muscles should be retrained and reconditioned. The workload that we place on our bodies will then transfer from the lower back and spine, to the hips, leg muscles and stronger (and better suited) muscles involved. Pain will naturally decrease with reconditioning and retraining.
The challenge that we have now is to find the correct techniques and exercises to perform to reverse this painful condition. Most back pain suggestions available (although with very good intentions) are either too strict or too difficult to perform. The user quickly finds the exercises difficult, fatiguing or painful to perform. They then stop and continue to struggle to find the correct help. Incorrect exercises have the same effect and consequently result in the return of your pain.
If you have significant concerns about whether or not an exercise program is the right option for you, you are not alone, your comfort and present level of injury to your back is a serious matter. However, this program is NOT a workout, it is rather a rehabilitation routine that you self learn at your own pace and comfort level. It is specific to those who are already hesitant and require a very safe pace in their recovery. For more, see, Concerns about Exercise, More Concerns and Why Exercise?
This Program helps to avoid this common problem and to provide careful, safe and easy exercises that can be performed at your own pace as your pain level decreases.
This site will help clarify these issues and provide for you a safe and very effective plan. Please look through the many topics and solutions available here.
