Lower Back Pain? May Need to Strengthen the Back

September 29, 2019

Lower Back Pain Continued...yes again. ⁣

You can probably tell by looking at the last few days worth of content that back pain is a bit more than just stretch this muscle/joint, strengthen that. ⁣

It takes a comprehensive approach at fixing the problem. ⁣

One of the areas that needs to be addressed is actual strength in the back. ⁣

Deadlift is my absolute favorite exercise to strengthen the back. ⁣

If it’s tolerable and not painful. ⁣

If it is not, we have to modify how you strengthen. ⁣

This video shows you a lighter dumbbell variant as opposed to doing traditional with a barbell. ⁣

Make SURE your spine is in neutral, your core is bracing good, and you don’t flex at the spine when bending down. ⁣

Do the hip hinge where basically the spine moves around the hips to descend and lower/raise the weight. ⁣

Not only does it strengthen but it also helps to restore the 🧠 to body connection which by now you know is so important. ⁣
