Lower back pain is the most common of all types of pain. In fact, The CDC reports that 25% of Americans reported low back pain in the last 3 months. This program is designed to address the most common culprits of low back pain to give you tools to help manage this common ailment. Each week is designed to improve your back mobility, then build stability and strength. Each week gets progressively harder, so progress at your own speed. People who have the best results do 10-15 minutes worth of exercise most days per week. Do not push through pain or worsening symptoms, as the spine is complicated and you may need a more specific program if symptoms are not improving.
Disclosure: These programs are not meant to be a diagnostic or treatment as each person and each injury is different. This plan is best used as an educational guide on typical exercises that can help a variety of conditions. Not all of these exercises are necessary for each injury, and some may actually be harmful. You should always consult your healthcare provider or physical therapist to ensure that you have the best program for you. Please do not continue these exercises if symptoms worsen, and each exercise should be moderately challenging and never unsafe or painful.
