The 3 Best Exercises to Relieve Low Back Pain | Chiropractor for Low Back Pain in Greer, SC

Hey, it’s Dr. Sammy from Ehlich Family Chiropractic. And today I want to talk to you about lower back pain. Now we know and understand that there are many causes to lower back pain. But there’s one in particular that relates to the muscles and more related to muscle weakness or imbalances, especially those muscles from the core, here in the abdomen region, the abdominal region, and those muscles from the back.

Here Ehlich Family Chiropractic, you’re definitely going to get adjustments. But we’re also going to recommend some postural exercises and or some more traditional exercises for you to do at home. And that way help you to get quicker and faster results, and improve your lower back to health in general.

So I want to recommend to you today, three exercises to relieve low back pain that I’m going to show you, so just because of this video, that way it’s easier for you to view them, we’re going to do these on this table here. But you can do these on the floor comfortably. So we’re going to start off with the first exercise and all you’re going to do is you’re gonna land your back. You’re gonna go ahead and stretch one layout, and then the other leg, you’re going to bring it up to your chest. And you’re gonna hold that as your starting point. And you’re gonna go ahead and release and stretch it out. And bring it back and hold and stretch it out. And you’re gonna switch and hold and stretch it out. So you can do each side, about four repetitions. And as you hold the leg, you can count slowly 12345 and release. And bring it back 12345. So you do that for about four to four repetitions.

The next exercise, you’re still going to sit and lay on the floor or on the table in this case, and you’re gonna go ahead and bend your knees. And take a deep breath in. Let it all out, and you’re going to engage those muscles of the abdomen or the core. And you’re also going to engage the muscles in your buttocks. So you’re gonna go ahead and raise your hip. And you’re gonna hold for five seconds, 12345, making sure you’re pressing into your abdomen, and you’re engaging those glutes. All right, and you relax. Now, if you’re not able to do that, you just go ahead and lay there. Take a deep breath. Let it all out, engage those muscles here in the core, and then the glutes. And at some point, you will be able to raise them up and hold 12345 and relax.

This last exercise, you’re gonna go ahead and bring your knees up to your chest. So you’re gonna be laying on your back and bringing them up to your chest as much as you can. Now in this case, you’re going to go ahead and bring them to the side, left or right, your preference first, but at the same time, you’re going to turn your head the opposite direction of the direction your knees went. So if your knees went to the left, your head is gonna go to the right. And you’re gonna hold that 12345 And you’re going to switch knees, so the right head to the left 12345 And you’re going to alternate about four repetitions on each side. All right.

So I know that these exercises are gonna be super beneficial for you. And together with the adjustments and breaking your bad habits. You’re gonna go in the right direction to improving your lower back health.
