What is Low back Health? How can I obtain it? What can Trinity Chiropractic do to help me?
A healthy low back is one that is free from pain and not easily injured. The easiest way to have a healthy low back is to have flexible yet strong muscles. And contrary to popular belief, strength does not always come from lifting weights. You can have a healthy, strong core of muscles by doing 4 exercises everyday. (the cat-camel, the bird-dog, the curl-up and the Side Bridge)
You can read about these excerises in this article titled, “Enhancing Low-back Health through Stabilization Exercises”. By Dr. Stuart McGill
