Lower back pain is one of the most common types of back pain a person can have throughout their lifetime. Usually the cause is not due to a specific injury or any traumatic force, it’s more often than not, to do with a person’s lifestyle. For example, sitting at a desk for long periods of time, carrying a shoulder bag or generally having bad posture can all lead to lower back pain.

However, there are certain exercises you can do to help elevate lower back pain which we’d like to share with you. With these exercises you’ll be strengthening, stretching and mobilising your lower back and getting a bit of a work out too.

  • Bottom to heels stretch
  • Knee rolls
  • Back extensions
  • Pelvic tilts
  • Deep abdominal strengthening

You can find out how to do these exercises correctly by visiting the NHS website which provides descriptions and pictures to help you carry them out safely.

These simple exercises done daily and consistently can make the world of difference to how you feel and can help combat lower back pain. Of course, adjusting your lifestyle and engaging in other gentle activities such as walking, swimming or cycling will complement your training exercises and help you see more a difference.
