Strengthen the core muscles that support the back.
This is a variation of the standard plank core-strengthening exercise that incorporates a stability ball to increase the exercise challenge.
Back pain is a common complaint with many origins. The LumboTrain Back Brace and LumboTrain Lady Back Brace from Bauerfeind helps to support the low back and control the stresses that may produce pain.
Begin this exercise kneeling in front of a stability ball. Place both forearms on the ball then extend the hips and knees. If properly positioned, a straight line can be drawn through the ankles, knees, hips and shoulders. Hold the position for 10-15 seconds, or as your ability allows. Relax and repeat as instructed.
