Low Back Pain and Injuries – Inner Core Strength Bent Knee

If you are experiencing low back pain or have injured your back, this exercise is good for activating the inner core stability muscles of the lower back when you have injured it. 

With your feet in the air and your knees up to your chest keep your lower back flat and your inner core muscles engaged below your belly button. Start with slowly lowering one bent knee down to allow the foot to reach the ground, and then return it to the start position above ninety degrees.

Make sure your lower back remains flat and the opposite knee and leg do not move. Repeat this movement for 10 repetitions, doing 3 sets on both sides.

This exercise is good for activating the inner core stability muscles of the lower back when you have injured it. If you have any pain during the exercise or are unsure about what you are doing, consult your local Physiotherapist before continuing.
