Low back pain (LBP) is a reality in most of our lives at one point or another. It can range from being a “nag” to being totally disabling. Let’s look at some exercises for the low back that can be done from a SITTING position so that they can be: 1) performed in public (without drawing too much attention) and 2) repeated every one to two hours with the objective to AVOID LBP from gradually getting out of control (STOP the “vicious cycle” so LBP stays “self-managed”).
1) DON’T do any exercise that creates SHARP pain.
2) Stay within “reasonable” pain boundaries.
3) DO these multiple times a day WHEN you feel tight, stiff, or sore (take 10-30 sec. every hour rather than 15 min. twice a day).
SITTING LOW BACK EXERCISE OPTIONS:
Remember, DO these MANY times a day (at least once every hour).
