GET YOUR LOWER BACK STRONG, FOR LIFE.

Whether it’s acute or chronic, we’ve got a tried and tested solution for you – And you don’t have to live in pain!

With the advent of sitting, the effects of gravity, lack of movement (for some), and too much CrossFit heavy lifting with poor form (for others), we’ve seen the rise of lower back pain issues in young and old. Poor movement patterns, a lack of mobility around joints, and poor strength have led us down this path. But there is a simple enough fix!

OUR APPROACH

Our Step-by-Step Approach Will Get You Back on Your Feet in No Time!

STEP 1

Get Moving With Pain-Free Activities & Limit Sitting Time And Standing Time

We, as human beings, were designed to move, not stay still! And with the advent of the modern world, we are less active than ever before. This is not good for the body and is one of the easiest places to start. Get moving, but aim for pain-free activities such as walking, pool work, and gentle strength.

STEP 2

Re-establish Joint Mobility

If a joint doesn’t do what it’s designed to do, it will pass the problem on to something further down the chain. A good thorough mobility assessment will identify key areas putting undue stress and load on your spine (usually but not limited to the thoracic spine, hips, and ankles).

STEP 3

Strengthen Surrounding Muscles

Muscles are what support joints. If you’re not engaging that muscle when you lift something heavy, the force will go straight through that joint. When it comes to lower backs, we tend to focus early on with core and glute activation and span out from there.
STEP 4

Learn How To Move Well

Learning how to move well is what getting in the gym is all about. The Fundamental movement Patterns – Squat, Deadlift, Push, Pull, Carry, Brace – are designed to mimic the requirements of life. Whether you are an elite athlete fending away a defender, pottering away at home in the garden, carrying groceries from the car, or just getting up off the floor or toilet seat – life requires you to be able to move well and be strong to do it.
STEP 5

Get Out of Those Sh*T Shoes!

If I told you your body is like a pyramid, and the base of it dictates how stable everything up top is, would it change your mind about good footwear? Just for example, consider something like high heels and how it changes the loading through the foot, and therefore higher up at the spine, or how wearing spongey cushiony shoes means you’re constantly standing on a bosu ball 24/7!

WHY THE LUMBAR SPINE?

The Lumbar Region is at the base of the spine, and, much like the base of a pyramid, is designed to be stable. Joints such as the thoracic spine and hips are meant to be mobile with lots of movement, and muscle groups like the core and glutes hold everything in nicely and give the region support. Any one of these things not doing what they were designed to do can get us into trouble. Mobility, strength, and moving well are the keys to success!
