What is the single best exercise for lower back pain?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to what the single best exercise for lower back pain is, as the underlying cause of the pain can vary from person to person. However, some exercises that have been found to be helpful for many people with lower back pain include:
1. Pelvic tilts: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the ground. Tighten your abdominal muscles and press your lower back into the floor, then release and repeat.
2. Bird dog: Start on your hands and knees, with your hands shoulder-width apart and your knees hip-width apart. Extend your right arm and left leg at the same time, keeping your back straight, then return to the starting position and switch sides.
3. Bridges: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the ground. Lift your hips up toward the ceiling, squeezing your glutes, and hold for a few seconds before lowering back down.
4. Cat-cow stretch: Start on your hands and knees, with your hands shoulder-width apart and your knees hip-width apart. Arch your back up toward the ceiling (cat pose), then lower it down and lift your head and tailbone up (cow pose).
It's important to remember that exercise should be tailored to your specific needs and condition, and it's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional or physical therapist before starting a new exercise program, especially if you have existing back pain or other health concerns.
P.S.- Don't forget you're just one step away from relieving your back pain...
