When your low back pain is mild, it is usually appropriate to start the Core Rehabilitation exercises which are designed to strengthen the low back and abdominal (core) muscles. As they strengthen they should support your low back more effectively reducing the chance of further low back pain/injury.
Anyone is welcome to use this resource but you do so at your own risk. While the exercises are designed for most people to do, we are only responsible for our patients that we examined and recommended specific exercises. We will be happy to advise you if you are unsure Contact Us
Supine Core Bridge
Start by holding for 10s and repeat 3 times
Work up to holding for 30s
When this is OK, cross you arms over your stomach which takes your elbows off the floor and reduces your stability, making the core muscles work harder.
