Exercises that strengthen your core area have been shown to help prevent and rehabilitate from low back pain. The core is defined by the structures that make up your torso including the lumbar spine (low back), the pelvic girdle, abdomen, and the hip joint. The muscles of your core help to support and stabilize your spine and pelvis. Strengthening these muscles can be very beneficial for improving function and eliminating back pain. Try these exercises during your next workout. If you need further assistance talk to a certified personal trainer, certified athletic trainer (ATC), or physical therapist.
