Exercise 2: Banishing back pain and strengthening your Lower Back

These exercises that you will see demonstrated here are based on the recommendations from the Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Treatment of Low Back Pain.

For those that may not have been assessed or are new to care, there is no one size fits all approach to strengthening your back, once your problem has been identified, an individualised programme will be set for you, so have a chat with us first if unsure :-)

Supine Bridge

Lie flat with your knees up.
Tighten your tummy muscles, squeeze your buttocks tightly and lift your back up.
Press your heels into the floor to ensure the muscles at the back of the thighs and hips are working hard.
Hold the position for 10 seconds.

Control your movement back down, pause and repeat 8 times. This is considered one set.

How many sets you do is guided by your specific problem and we will advise you.

If in any doubt, we're here to advise, never be unsure and always ask to get the most effective results!
