Any golfers out there? Golf is a great summer activity and the average male will expend about 620 calories during an 18-hole round!! Not a bad way to get some activity in. Like any activity though there is always the chance for injury and in fact the most common complaint is low-back pain. It can be caused by poor swing mechanics, poor conditioning or overuse…that is using the same movements repeatedly.
80% off Americans, at some point in their lives, with suffer from chronic or acute low back pain. That’s a frightening statistic.
That's why here on The Balance Guy I beat you over the head with core, strength and mobility. It's that important.
We need to stay on top of low back pain, whether your suffering or not. This is why I do this exercise most days of the week.
LEG LOWERING EXERCISE
Tip- breath all the air out of your lungs as you lower the leg towards the floor. Do 10-15 rep on both sides.
Is back pain familiar to you? If so, you’re not alone. Eighty percent of the population of the US, at some point in their lives, with suffer from chronic or acute low back pain. That’s a frightening statistic. About 2% to 10% of people who experience low back pain develop chronic low back pain.
The first thing most people do when low back pain strikes is reach for the pain pills. Advil and other over-the-counter medications have numerous side effects and will lose their effectiveness when used in the long term.
Instead let’s use our body to heal our pain.
