As a matter of fact I did some of the floor yoga and strength exercises this morning because I felt a a little twinge in my back last week.

Thanks Pam. I'll keep doing them. Only thing is, I usually don't hurt until the next morning, but I think that's normal. That may be the "No pain, no gain" thing.

I think Wii fit plus has quite a lot of things that would be good for the back, the yoga poses and some of the strength. If you start out slow and quit if it hurts, you might find some that help. Your doggie is cute too. Pam

Well, on Wii fit plus, the one where you raise and lower opposite legs and arms is good. ( where you are on hands and knees). Doing that same move while lying on your stomach is good too. And any stretches that don't hurt will help too. My lower back acts up sometimes but not too bad. Good luck, Pam

Thanks Pam. That's good advice but I'm not sure my insurance will cover that. I will definitely check though. The only thing that worked for a while were injections. I was just curious to see if anyone else had back pain and had certain exercises or workout routines that helped them with it.

I'd be careful of an exercise that causes you back pain. Maybe it would be best if you got some professional advice from a physical therapist or something. Strengthening the core can help with lower back pain, but it needs to be done so that you don't do any damage. Pam

I've been doing my Wii workouts but would like to know if anyone else out there has bad lower back pain. I've had it for some years now from an infection. I really think if I strengthen my core it could help a lot. I have several Wii games....Fit Plus, Sports Resort, Abba You Can Dance, Sports Active & More Workouts 2 Game Bundle, Gold's Gym Cardio Workout and Your Shape by Jenny McCarthy with the motion tracking camera.

Sometimes I'm not sure if I'm hurting a "good hurt" or because it's something I'm doing wrong. Can anyone suggest the best workouts with the Wii for lower back pain? Thanks in advance.
