NOT ALL BACK PAIN IS THE SAME
There are so many great back stretching routines here on YouTube, but they all miss the mark on one key aspect – not all lower back pain is caused by the same thing and therefore it cannot all be treated the same way.
For example – if your pain is coming from a bulged disc I would recommend very different stretches than I would if you recently threw your back out. The truth is there are good exercises that will help your back feel better and there are bad exercises that might make your back feel worse depending on the cause of your pain.
In this video I’ll not only show you 10 of the best stretches for your lower back, but also indicate which stretches should be performed or avoided depending on what’s causing your pain.
Please keep in mind these recommendations are general and, as always, I encourage you to consult a local physical therapist for recommendations specific to your unique needs.
THE SECRET TO YOUR SUCCESS
The key to seeing success with these exercises in treating your low back pain is CONSISTENCY. The more often you perform these exercises the better you’ll feel. Come back to this video daily, follow right along with this routine, and make sure you get all of them in, and I know you’ll see good results.
GENERAL RULES FOR LOWER BACK STRETCHING
Take the stretch TO pain but not INTO pain. Keep it comfortable
Remember to breathe – usually about 3 big breaths per stretch
For the most part – we’ll hold each stretch for 20 seconds and repeat three times.
