Experiencing Lower back pain?

One the biggest complaints clients share with me before training is their concern about lower back pain.  Majority of them have an office job that consists of sitting for long periods of time.  If parts of your body are not being trained either by daily activity or working out, naturally an um balance will occur in how your muscle carry your body weight.

If one is experiencing lower back pain, a misconception is that you should train that area even more. The reality is those muscle groups should really be rested and the surrounding muscles are the ones that need to be trained.

The muscle groups you want to train that support the lower back is the Glutes, Hip flexors, Adductors and Abductors. 

Naturally you want to train the rest of your lower region as well but the 4 main surrounding muscles groups are key. Lower back pain can also relate to weak abdominal muscles, so you have some work to do.

Stretching can also help loosen up those tighten regions which can also contribute to that pulling feeling in your lower back.  It's that same concept with the surrounding muscles mentioned to strength train, you can also stretch them and another common area that leads to lower back pain is tight hamstrings.  Be sure to stretch that muscle group to help lessen the tension in that are of your body.

Laura-I didn't realize that this was part of Feng Shui. As someone who deals with back pain these are great exercises to know. I also go to a massage therapist and have learned quite a bit from her. Thank you for the great exercises and the diagram.

I have been suffering from lower back pain from 2 years ago. I have done an MRI that shows a small disk bulge problem on my lumbar area of the lower spine. The doctor gave me a few back exercises and suggested me to maintain good posture like good sitting posture, good sleeping position, good posture while working on the computer, etc. After doing the exercise and maintaining the correct posture, now I am almost free from lower back pain. I found exercise is the most effective way to relieve back pain. Back pain can cause due to various reasons such as accident, lifting heavy bags, incorrect gym exercise, bad sitting & sleeping position, long journey, too much stress, etc. I got a lot of help about what are the causes of back pain from this website. Everyone should know the common causes of back pain so that they can prevent it. Do not late to meet the doctor if you have any back problem.
