Lower Back Pain Relief – Osteopath Gold Coast

3 Easy Exercises to Stabilise Your Pelvis

So many of us suffer from Lower Back Pain. If we can stabilise the pelvis we are half way there to relieving lower back pain. These simple exercises can be done daily, at home or at the office. They will help strengthen the abdomen and therefore stabilise the pelvis.

1. Quadraped
Start on all fours, knees under hips, hands under shoulders.

Reach left leg back, squeezing left buttock, keeping abdomen pulling up towards the lower back. If you can keep stability reach the opposite hand (right) forward and maintain balance.

Hold this side for 30 seconds then repeat on the other side.

Repeat three times on each side.

2. Bridge
Lie on your back. Tuck your tailbone under to flatten your lower back. Keep the tailbone tucked as you lift your hips up. Push your heels into the floor and squeeze your buttocks as you lift your hips. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat three times.

3. Advanced Bridge

As above but with one leg. Repeat three times on each leg.

If you feel any pain discontinue and discuss at your next Osteopathic consult.
