Hi, I’m Ken Kashabura, personal trainer and
freelance fitness writer, and this is how to treat lower back pain from running. Let’s
say that you went out and you had your run. You come back, and your back’s really tight
— your back’s hurting. You have your hamstrings and your hips that you’re flexing every day,
have someone take a look at your form because you want to make sure that you have a strong
posterior chain. Now, your posterior chain is your hamstrings, your glutes, and your
spinal rectors are the ones that run up and down your upper back. And the way that…the
ways that you can work those muscles, you can work them easily with bird dogs, bridges,
and then crunches will help with your lower back as well. You also might want to have
a professional or a…someone who know…who you know who’s a good runner to watch your
form. You may be doing some other things that are…improperly during your run that you
might not be able aware of, but a professional or, you know, a…an experienced runner will
be able to point out. Could be that your feet are overpronating, you could be supernating.
It could be in your knees. It could be even be, you know, anywhere. I’m Ken Kashabura,
and that’s how to treat lower back pain from running.
