Chiropractic Back Exercises
Most people will experience lower back pain at some point in their lifetime; in fact the prevalence is estimated to be 80%. Back pain can be extremely debilitating and affect an individual’s ability to work, carrying out their daily activities and even interfere with sleep. Our chiropractic clinic in Oakville finds most cases of lower back pain are due to mechanical alterations, meaning the muscles, ligaments, joints and/or discs are dysfunctional.
There is a strong link between the strength of the deep abdominal muscles (the ‘core’ muscles) and lower back pain. A stronger core makes a person much less susceptible to a lower back injury, and rehabbing the deep core muscles is a critical step in alleviating lower back pain.
The first step in alleviating lower back pain should always be consulting with a professional. Chiropractors are experts in treating lower back pain, and the most recent guidelines for managing lower back pain recommend spinal manipulation as an effective management strategy. Our chiropractors are always available to help diagnose and manage you lower back pain.
These beginner core exercises are safe exercises to start if you’re experiencing lower back pain now, and are excellent first steps in helping prevent back pain from occurring or reoccurring. These chiropractor-approved exercises help build core strength and are the building blocks to more advanced core exercises.
