Essential Exercises to Fix Low Back Pain
You’re not alone if you struggle, manage or simply put up with “low back pain.” It’s estimated that 80% of adults in North America experience at least one episode during their lives while many deal with chronic pain for years. There are many factors that contribute to the development of low back pain, and biomechanics plays a critical role. The area we call “the lower back” depends on coordinated tilts and twists in the hips, pelvis and spine for optimal functioning—when their rhythm is off, dysfunction and pain are not far behind. There is also the upper spine to consider because its typical lack of mobility can be a major (and often ignored) factor in low back pain.
Please join Margot if you live with stiffness, strain, tweaks or pain in your lower back, or if you hold your core and/or lower back in specific ways to avoid discomfort. There are many gentle ways to improve the rhythmic functioning of this area so that lower back pain dissipates. The key is finding what works best for you!
