STOP Lower Back Pain After Standing
Are you familiar with the feeling of lower back pain striking after just a few minutes of standing? It’s a common complaint for many, but it doesn’t have to be the norm. In this video, we’ll explore why this discomfort occurs and, more importantly, how you can alleviate it.
Understanding the Problem
In most cases, the pain that plagues you after standing for only a short time can be attributed to a common issue—muscle imbalances. These imbalances lead to tightness in some areas and weakness in others, particularly in your core and glutes. The resulting effect is a gradual forward tilting of your pelvis, creating a posture often referred to as “Donald Duck Butt.” This arching of the lower back can cause undue stress and pain in the affected area.
Solving the Issue
To address this problem, we’ll guide you through four simple exercises designed to alleviate the tightness and strengthen the weak muscles causing your lower back pain.
- Hip Flexor Stretch: Begin with a kneeling position, gently pushing one knee forward. This stretch targets the hip flexors and the lower back. Repeat on both sides for about one minute each.
- Core Strengthening Crunch: Focus on strengthening your core, specifically the rectus abdominis. Avoid overworking the hip flexors with a basic crunch. Ensure your lower back is flush against the ground, engaging your transverse abdominis. Feel the burn as you punch your hands upward while keeping your lower back secure.
- Glute Bridge: Enhance the strength of your glutes with this simple exercise. Lie on your back with your feet a few feet from your butt. Lift your hips towards the sky while squeezing your glutes. Perform multiple repetitions to reactivate those weak muscles.
- Child’s Pose Stretch: Finish off with a yoga-inspired stretch to release tension in your lower back. Extend your arms in front, push your butt back, and sit on your heels. Hold this position for 30 seconds to a minute, feeling the soothing stretch.
By incorporating these four exercises into your daily routine, you can experience a significant reduction in your lower back pain after standing. The key is consistency, so make these stretches and exercises a part of your daily regimen. Share this video with friends or family members who might also benefit from these techniques.
