The number of U.S. emergency room visits, pain medication orders, injections, imaging studies and surgical interventions directed at lower back pain continue to rise. Physical therapists frequently meet people who report their fitness efforts have been hampered by low back pain. Here are five recommendations that can help those with lower back pain have more success in the gym.
Ergonomic experts have found that many more industrial lower back injuries happen in the morning. The theory is that the discs in the lower back imbibe or gain fluid overnight and are more likely to deform with a physical challenge. Give your lower back one or two hours of walking
The function of your "core" muscles is to limit movement of the lumbar spine and pelvis. Stop all crunches, toes to bar, side bends, sit-ups, seated twisting. Learn how to perform bird dogs, side hovers, Pallof press, planks, and carries. Compliance with this single hint would reduce U.S. expenditures on lower back pain dramatically.
Please cease all the forward spine flexion, toe touching, spine twisting activities. Greater lumbar spine range of motion is associated with more - not less, lower back pain problems. Learn how to foam roll and mobilize the hip flexors and gluteal muscles. Prolonged sitting and most popular "cardio training" deadens these muscles. Properly functioning hip flexors and gluteal muscles keep the pelvis stable
Ditch the front-loaded hip hinges, deadlifts, cleans, snatch, and drop the loaded squats. Swear off the lower lumbar deranging leg press. Reduce spinal compression and train the legs, one at a time. Single leg training reveals the right/left side movement asymmetries that drive lower back pain. Resolving these asymmetries and sparing the spine goes a long way to abolishing back pain. You will need some guidance on exercise selection and execution - which brings us to #5.
Exercise is the most powerful medication on the planet. Nothing else comes close. Take the proper dose of appropriate training and the results will be amazing. Take the wrong dose
