What Core Exercises Should I Avoid With Lower Back Pain?
A lot goes into applying core exercises to a painful low back.
For starters, we don’t want to give specific exercises a blanket label as “good” or “bad.”
They can literally hold someone back from seeing relief due to fear keeping them away from exploring alternate options.
As a rule of thumb for someone first starting on their journey of back pain relief, I say to eliminate all core exercises that involve
- Side Bending
- or Twisting
This leaves all neutral spine work free game.
I do this to dial back on the potential activities that could be causing symptoms to flare while still challenging the core in a way that will lead to good results.
From there, it comes down to the individual on whether or not they should start doing other “more risky” exercises.
Telling me I can’t twist my spine (even with a 10-year-old ruptured disc with no chronic back pain) would be more so out of fear than facts about what My body can or cannot handle.
Now If you were encouraging me to twist two years into a chronic back pain journey, I would look at you like you were crazy.
It’s all about context. If you’re questioning whether or not what you’re doing is right for you, get help!
