Strengthen Core Muscles To Decrease Low Back Pain

Strengthen Core Muscles To Decrease Low Back Pain

March 17, 2015

Chronic low back pain can affect up to 15% of the population leading to significant physical discomfort and loss of productivity.

Your body’s core muscle groups include abdominal and pelvic muscles. They function to stabilize the spine and pelvis during activity. Regular exercises designed to strengthen the core muscles and stabilize the spine have been shown to improve symptoms and functions in patients affected with chronic low back pain. In a recent publication, Kumar and colleagues showed that patients undergoing a regular core strengthening exercise program received significant relief in their back pain symptoms after only six weeks of treatment.

SimpleTherapy offers a wide variety of core and lumbar stabilization exercises designed to improve strength and flexibility and decrease pain symptoms due to low back pain.
