Do you have lower back pain? Sometimes it just takes some core strengthening exercises to ease that pain by building some stability. In this video, Point Performance’s Dr. Allison Haynes, DPT, shows how to perform a back bridge, except in increments.
This exercise will train your abdominal and back muscles to control your spine at each vertebral level. This allows for good stability in dynamic postures. A lot of core exercises focus on stabilizing the spine in a neutral position, where as this focuses on stabilizing the spine while in motion.
This exercise is appropriate for most low back pain patients, but should be advised by your physical therapist if it is appropriate for your condition.
