USE THIS EASY DRILL FOR YOUR LOW BACK PAIN Do you have back pain when you stand for long periods of time? Or when you raise your arms overhead?๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™‚๏ธ . If you do, your back may be sensitive to extension. You see, the joint stress of your low back is distributed between your vertebral bodies and discs in the front and the facet joints in the back. . How much your back is curved can affect how this stress shifts. The low back naturally has a backwards curvature. When we sit, we load the front of the vertebrae more because the curve tends to flatten and be more straight. When we stand, we tend to be more extended and load the facet joints more. . So if you have pain when standing or bending backwards, it's most likely due to a sensitivity to extension. And the best way to combat that is to train the anterior core muscles (๐Ÿ’ชrectus abdominus and obliques) to keep you from repetitively extending in day to day movements and posture. . This requires not only strength but motor coordination too. And the dead bug is the perfect exercise for the job. This band cue will help you really focus on keeping those ribs tucked down so you don't overextend. Focus on quality over quantity. Go slow and controlled and don't forget to BREATHE!๐Ÿ˜ฅ .
