Relieve Back Pain with Foundation TrainingMar 04, 2014
I continually want to provide you with tools to help you take care of your body and reduce your pain. However, that's not as easy as it sounds. In other words, I know that not every approach is going to work for everyone. So, having a variety of options is essential in healing. Here's one option. Foundation Training is one of the tools I have recently discovered that has shown promising results for back pain sufferers.
If you've ever had back pain, you may be familiar with the advice to strengthen your core. When you have pain, most people tell you to strengthen your abdominals. This is because many experts believe that strong abs will reduce pressure on your spine. However, this approach doesn't address the back muscles themselves. Also, if all you do is practice crunches, the forward flexion of that exercise can further strain the back.
Foundation Training focuses on hinging from the hips while keeping the lower back in neutral alignment. This allows you to better activate your hamstrings and glutes to produce powerful forward movement.
The Foundation exercises might be a good compliment to your exercise program. I plan to give them a try and see how my back responds. I hope you will do the same! If you do, let me know what you experience.
