3 simple exercises for lower back pain

Lower back pain is a common ailment that can be caused by a variety of factors, such as poor posture, muscle strain, or herniated discs.

If you’re struggling with lower back pain, there are three simple exercises you can do to ease your discomfort.

1. The Superman Exercise

This is a great exercise for strengthening the muscles in your lower back and buttocks. To do the Superman exercise, simply lie face down on the floor with your arms extended out in front of you. Slowly lift your upper body, lower body, and legs off the floor, holding this position for 5-10 seconds before returning to the starting position. Repeat this exercise 10 times.

2. The Pelvic Tilt Exercise

The pelvic tilt exercise helps to stretch and strengthen the muscles in your lower back and abdomen. To do this exercise:

  1. Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor.
  2. Slowly tilt your pelvis backward, tightening your stomach muscles as you do so.
  3. Hold this position for 5 seconds before slowly returning to the starting position.
  4. Repeat this exercise 10 times.

3. The Cobra Exercise

The Cobra exercise is great for improving flexibility in the spine and relieving tension in the lower back muscles. To do this exercise, lie on your stomach with your hands placed palm-down next to your shoulders. Slowly lift your head and chest off the floor, holding this position for 5 seconds before returning to the starting point. Repeat this exercise 10 times 

Conclusion 

If you’re experiencing lower back pain, there are a few simple exercises you can do at home to find relief. Try incorporating the Superman, Pelvic Tilt, and Cobra exercises into your daily routine to help ease your pain and improve your overall flexibility and strength.
