Developing an exercise program is an essential part of overcoming a lower back injury. However, many programs out their today are often not individualized to an address an individual’s specific needs or goals, which usually does a significant disservice to the individual trying to overcoming their lower back injury. For instance, if you visit with a clinician that is treating you, they may often give you a ‘sheet’ of exercises or stretches to do without any rationale for why you need to do them. This often does a major disservice to the individual, but sometimes it’s even worse when you search a youtube video titled “top 10 best stretches/exercises” for lower back pain. Everyone’s top 10 best stretches/exercises will be different, and that is an important consideration to keep in mind!
In this video, I specifically share with you how to develop an exercise program as it relates explicitly to overcoming a lower back injury and getting back to a sport or activity. As the video goes on, I also share with you some specific indicators to determine if you’re program is working for you or not. And if it’s not working for you, I share with you ways that you can adjust and change your program to make it work. Lastly, towards the end of the video, I explain exercise sometimes may not always be advisable for the beginning stages of a lower back recovery program and how exercise could make things worse for a lower back injury.
