Rethinking Lower Back Pain

Apr 07, 2021

 
This week I take you through a short flow while we talk about all things lower back pain. 8 out of 10 people go through some sort of discomfort in this region. 8 out of 10!!!! Are you serious?! That's insane. Which tells me it's time to get to work.

Today, I'm going to show you how to incorporate my 4 must have exercises in combating lower back pain. Press play to watch the whole video.

🎯What's tricky about lower back pain is that it can stem from almost anything. The origin of each person's pain is unique to them (it's not a one-size fits all). So trying to target a specific area to work on is more trouble than its worth. Instead, move the body through all three planes of motion (front to back, side-to-side, and through rotation). You might be surprised to find out what's actually in need of work (spoiler alert, it's not your lower back).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🎯And finally, the reason we KEEP getting into this mess is because we wait until we're injured to do anything about it. True recovery has to do with being proactive and consistent. Give yourself a quick little routine you can do on the daily (5-10 mins) - mine includes a foam roller - and start to get curious about what works for YOU.
