Exercises To Reduce Back Pain : Exercises For Back Pain Relief: Front-To-Back Rock
If you prefer text
So the next exercise is similar to the left right rock. This time it’s going to be front back rock and while we’re doing this we’re going to lie back, make sure the bodies aligned, tuck the legs in, tuck the chin and rock back and forth. You’re using your abdominals to do the rock and then also you’re massaging your spine at the same time including the lower back. So this exercise is great to really strengthen and also to massage the lower back and the spine. So I’ll demonstrate how this exercise looks, it’s the front back rock. So I’m going to lie back, feel the alignment in my body, and I’m going to bring my legs into my chest and I’m going to hold my arms around my legs and then I’m going to tuck my chin.
Rather than just masking the pain and hoping it doesn’t happen again (which it will) you can grab our free audiobook on outwitting the back pain industry and getting on the road to recovery and thank me later. As someone who has been stuck on the coach, the floor and the road in the middle of Vietnam without warning I know how bad it can get. The sooner you deal with it, the better.
And next I’m just going to rock up and down so I’m using my abdominals to rock. You really feel the difference when you engage the abdominals in this exercise so you always want to think about squeezing the abdominals in and really using your core to rock you back and forth. Not so much momentum, you really want to use those muscles. So make sure you’re engaging in the core and you’ll really feel a strengthening of your abs which helps reduce lower back pain…
