The most important back pain exercises, in my opinion, are actually moves that improve HIP flexibility and mobility.
I am grateful that I learned this early on in my career as a doctor of chiropractic because way too often people with back pain merely get their back adjusted (which can give blessed relief) BUT IT DOESN’T “STICK”!
When the spine is repeatedly adjusted or manipulated over and over again without paying attention to the ROOT CAUSE, it’s very possible to get “addicted” to another adjustment when the pain or other symptoms return!
My view? Let’s GET TO THE CORE of the problem! And it’s usually that the HIPS are not doing their job (commonly because they’re too tight). So the back has to make up for the lost movement in the hips and that ends up overloading the joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia!
What you’ll see in the video is the 2 EXTREMELY IMPORTANT HIP MOVEMENTS that I teach all my private clients and my online students at the Core Wellness Institute that will save your spine and help your brain “re-groove” a good FUNCTIONAL hip “movement program”.
