80% of the population will experience low back pain during their life. Here are a few simple exercises that I use in my practice, to help keep your spine mobile, your body strong and reduce your risk of back pain. These are basic exercises that can be performed 4–5 times per week to help prevent the onset of back pain. Don’t perform any exercise that is painful or too difficult.

(Beginning in table-top position: extend opposite arm and leg, 10 reps each side with 5 second holds)


(Beginning in table-top position: gently transition between cat and camel positions, 10 reps with 5-second holds)


(Beginning laying flat on back, with head supported by pillow if needed: 3 reps each leg, with 5-second holds)

 The trick is to stick with them.

Always consult your physical therapist or doctor before beginning a new exercise program!
