3 best exercises for lower back pain ~ Dr. Angela Walk

80% of people in this country alone will experience debilitating back pain at some point in their lifetime. Back problems send more people to the doctor annually than nearly any other medical problem.


It's no wonder people are searching for a back pain solution. Traditional medical approaches often focus on addressing the symptoms rather than the underlying cause and offer no real resolution.

Recent evidence has shown that the most effective form of treatment for both acute (short-term) and chronic back pain are natural approaches.


My focus with this article is to shed light on how our activities throughout the day mold our bodies into poor postures an weaken our core.


Have you noticed how some people stand and walk with great posture while others walk hunched over leading with their head? There’s an expression that states we are a product of our environment.


And that’s very true. This mean’s the way we sit, stand, walk, or run all affect the muscles and bone structures of our bodies.


The more repetitive the position or movement, the more we promote tissues to grow and become fixed.


Most common symptoms for this are tight muscles in the front (anterior) side of our bodies and lengthened and weak muscles on the backside (posterior) side of our body.


This results in reoccurring pain in the back, neck, knees, elbows and shoulders.


The best solution is to lengthen the muscles in the front of you body and strengthening the core muscles in the back.


Before I reveal the best core exercises, I wanted to share with you the (4) most common causes of lower back pain that I have seen in my practice.
