This article came right on time for me. My lower back has been bothering me for over a week now. I have degenerative disc. I have been walking everyday... but this morning at the track I could only walk a mile....Ugh.... my lower back really started hurting I had to stop. I am going to try these exercises to strenghten my back. I refuse to let this get me down and stop my progress.
thanks for this helpful and timely article.
I had lower back surgery years ago and I can vouch for these exercises. I can give you a better forecast than the weatherman. But as much as exercising may cause does lack of exercise. Report

Well exercise may be worse if you have different type of pain , everything depends on cause of pain , some cause may ever require surgery

When I suddenly had severe lower back pain, the first thing I did was go to my orthopedist. He prescribed about one week of rest and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, and then I had a couple months of physical therapy. It really helped! Report
Appreciate individual comments & concerns. I went to physical therapist and learned several things among which are twisting probably is not good for back, pelvic tilts are excellent, and the exercises in this articled are in general agreement with my PT. Report
Can't wait to do these! Report
I suffer from severe fibromyalgia, and would dearly love to do these exercises, but find that even a few minutes can make me so exhausted that I may be 'laid out' for hours. It is critical to husband one's strength, even while keeping moving. I find it beneficial to go into my garden and pull weeds-gently of course- for a few minutes several times a day. This gets me bending over, and using some gentle stretches. Because of severe back and hip pain, I try to modify a little- a minute or 2 at a time- i don't know how beneficial this is in terms of fitness, but it helps me to keep moving, which is really what those of us with chronic pain need to do.

Re: the last exercise on increasing flexibility in the lower back. My belly is too big to do both legs at once. My doctor okayed doing one at a time and that works fine for me. Report

I wouldn't consider - and didn't - moving ahead with this until I sought the advice of an orthopedist, who referred me to their physical therapists...who recommended exercises that really helped. I felt I was in safe hands...and fortunately, I was. Report
