Spine stabilization exercise strategies are under debate in the physical therapy field. Some researchers suggest a local approach in which you isolate a single muscular effort. Other researchers suggest a global approach in which you contract many muscles at the same time.
Low back pain can often be the result of spinal joints that are not moving well or produce pain. The spinal bones are called vertebrae and the joints between the spinal bones can be likened to a triangle.
Core exercises can stabilize the lumbar spine. Low back pain can often occur with people that have weak core muscles. The “core” is commonly thought of as the abdominal muscles. A more comprehensive definition involves thinking of the core as a cylinder like a soda can.
Prevent back injuries by maintaining the inward curve of your low back. Your spine has a series of natural curves to it. It bends inwards at your neck (lordosis), outwards at your mid-back (kyphosis) and inwards at your low back (lordosis). These curves help to distribute forces from movement and gravity.
