5/5 Stars Amazon Catamaran’78
I found even the first 10-12 exercises in this program were a great help in relieving pain and spasm in muscles of the lower back, and helping to wake to a more mobile back in the morning. If you have disc problems diagnosed by MRI and have had serious pain episodes from doing ‘stuff you used to do with no problem’, start slowly and don’t overdo it.

Part One – What to Know
Before you begin the first exercise, start here. It will help you to develop the right mindset to be able to follow this very easy but challenging program.
Introduction – A Word from the Author
Lower Back Pain Issues
The Proper Mindset
In Part 1, I explain why the cycle of back pain is so difficult to break, how to break it, stay focused & committed, and the ways to avoid the pitfalls that lead us to give up too easily. I believe that this chapter is a vital prerequisite to following the back pain exercises. It is not only about performing the exercises, but patiently committing to them as you progress.
Part Two – What to Do
There are many exercises here to master. Why? Because solving back pain is NOT a quick fix. Many imbalances occur before it begins to really hurt. Fortunately, there are exercises for each one. I break them up into 4 key stages, from easy to challenging, targeting every area that affects your back.
The Low Back Pain Program Exercise Outline
Limited Mobility Exercises
Here you will find exercises that you are familiar with, combined with ones you have never thought would help back pain but are essential. As you progress and master the exercises, you will not need to perform them again unless you desire.

A list only of more exercises that also benefit back pain. You may already know most of them but they are not illustrated here. You can add them to help complement the program for your own desire but they are not required.
