Hello, I’m Alex from myChiro Clinic in Canary Wharf. If you suffer from achy compressive lower back pain that get’s worse when you
stand or arch your back, then this is the video for you.
We see this all the time in clinic and patients often find it relieves if they sit down or
bend forward. What happens is that when you extend the joints and arch them you get a compressive
ache unless you have the muscle strength to control it, so if you’re getting it all you
need to do is strengthen. So here are three great exercises you can
do to help that, Number 1: 10 pelvic tilts. Up and down, away from the floor. Number 2:
Dropping the leg, either keep your back flat against the floor or using
a small towel, flat against the towel. Drop the leg slowly and keep the pressure with
the lower back exactly the same on the floor. Finally, the dog pee: Same as above but just
bring the leg down 45 degrees to the side, it’s really important to keep the pressure
exactly the same with this one. So with those, do 5 sets of 6-8 (reps) and
if you do this 3 times a week, you’ll feel the pressure reduce on the joints in no time.
