Exercises for Low Back Pain
As with the last blog, we will assume that your low back pain is mechanical, and that it has been screened by a suitably-trained healthcare professional.
So, what are some specific exercises that might help with your low back pain?
Again, please do not perform any of these exercises if they are actively painful (some discomfort is ok).
Some general tips about stretching and mobilisation
Stretching, particularly when done for rehabilitation or healing (as opposed to mere flexibility for e.g. dancing or martial arts), should always be in pain-free range of movement.
