Do You Have Back Pain..?

Or Do You Struggle With Core Strength/Stability?

Back Pain:

Back Pain is one of the most common problems with nearly 80% of Americans experiencing back pain at some point in their life. Back pain can be extremely frustrating, however, there are ways to eliminate/reduce back pain by… developing proper mechanics, developing core strength and adding in mobility/stretching!It is also important to remember that your back is made up of muscles and can get sore just like any other muscle group.

Some common trends that can lead to back pain are:

  • Bad Posture/Prolonged Sitting/ Sedentary Lifestyle
  • Weak Core Muscles/ Poor Form/Control (Anterior vs Posterior Pelvic Tilt)
  • Tight Surrounding Muscles (Hamstrings, Glutes, Hips/ Quads)

Solutions:

  1. Exercise More: Add in more activity to your day, stand at work rather than sit. Focus on improved posture and exercise more!
