Low Back Pain and Lumbar Stabilization Exercises

It has been estimated that approximately 80% of people in Western countries have experienced low back pain (LBP) at some point in their lives. Most cases resolve within 2-4 weeks without any medical intervention. However, within 1 year following the first episode of LBP, 60 -80% of patient will have recurring pain. Current research has reported that in most cases of LBP, certain muscles of the back that stabilize the spine are reflexively inhibited (shutdown) after injury. These muscles do not spontaneously recover even if patients are pain free with a return to normal activity levels. These specific muscles work together to support and stabilized the spine to help prevent LBP. These muscles include the lumbar multifidi and the transversus abdominus. We will talk and discuss more on these muscle on the next entry. Take care of your back everyone :) Have a good day!
