Lower Back Pain Exercises
Many people have asked us about lower back pain exercises, and we are hesitant to recommend any specific exercise for back pain here because, without knowing the exact cause of your back pain, we don’t want to suggest something that might make your condition worse. We are going to offer some simple exercises that target the lower back area, but strongly recommend you talk with your doctor, especially if you’ve injured yourself or if your back pain is more than minor tension or discomfort. This article is in no way a substitute for medical advice.In addition to doing exercises for the lower back, you may want to try some abdominal exercises. That’s because the abdominal muscles help to support the spine. Strengthening those muscles can help to relieve back pain.
The lower back pain exercises we have here should not increase your pain. If they hurt you, don’t do them. We don’t want you to injure your back further. Instead, you should see your doctor or a physical therapist for exercises that are appropriate for your condition.
Before beginning these exercises, it’s good to do some warm up activity. That can be walking, riding an exercise bike, using an elliptical machine, or similar activity. Warm up for five to seven minutes before beginning your lower back pain exercises. Warming up increases the blood flow to your muscles and prepares them for activity. It makes injury less likely.
