Exercise to Relieve Back Pain

Transcript:

Dr. Rachana Vora: So, in our previous video, we spoke about cervical pain. Now, we'll be talking about low back pain causes. First, long driving hours; second, wrong sitting posture or sedentary lifestyle; third, poor core strength; fourth, any other lumbar disorder; and the last one, hamstring tightness.

So, now, I'll be demonstrating a few exercises to overcome the lumbar pain for lower back pain relief. Press your back over the mat. Hold it for five counts. One, two, three...and then, you release. Repeat this ten times and do this thrice a day.

Raise your pelvis up slowly. Hold it up for five counts. One, two, three -

Repeat this ten times. Do it thrice a day.

You keep your hands shoulder-width apart. Come up. Arch your back. Hold this position for ten counts. Get back to your relaxing position.

You keep your hands below the shoulder level and push up. Hold this position for ten counts. One, two, three -

Repeat this ten times and do it thrice a day.

You bend both the knees. Raise your leg straight up. Hook the strap under your foot and pull it up with both your hands. Hold it up for 30 seconds. Your 30 seconds are up. You slowly release the strap, lower down your leg, and release.

If the pain persists even after doing all these exercises, please consult your nearby physiotherapist or an orthopedician. For any other pain-related queries, subscribe to our channel, Pain Clinics.
