Is Working Out Causing Your Lower Back Pain?

Do you suffer from frequent lower back pain?

Do you notice pain more after you’ve just finished a tough workout? Are you worried that the exercises themselves or poor form while working out are contributing to your lower back pain?

Many nerves run through your spine, so lower back pain can actually lead to leg pain, hip problems, and overall decreased mobility. Protecting your lower back while working out can prevent direct injury, and control progression of a problem that may have already occurred.

Decrease your risk of a lower back injury by:

  1. Strengthening your core muscles: A strong and supported core helps to support your spine! While working out, you’ve probably realized that all core exercises rely on your back in some way. Keep your spine protected by keeping your lower back flush to the floor, or during sit-ups and crunches, make sure you’re not arching your back.
