Osteopath Jamey Pemmelaar providing you with his first of three exercises to help reduce lower back pain.
! Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints I’ve recieved as both an osteopath and personal trainer. It can restrict your exercise capacity, give you trouble sleeping and even inhibit your ability to live the lifestyle you want. It’s therefore important to get ontop of it as soon as possible to ensure a speedy recovery !
The exercise shown is a nice and simple exercise done in the standing position and is especially good for individuals who find getting up and down off the ground painful. It aims to decrease lower back tightness and subsequent pain, we hope it helps!
Key points to remember!
1. Stand tall; start standing tall and try not to let your shoulders fall forward while moving
2. Move slowly; count to 2 on the way down to your knee and 2 to return to the standing position
3. 10-12 reps; repeat 10-12 times each side, 2-3 times per day.
