3 Lumbar Exercises to Help Strengthen Core Muscles


Hello, Dr. Mike Funicello here, with
Katherine from The Joint. Today we’re going to be covering three lumbar
exercises that help strengthen your core muscles. Remember, perform all these
exercises as advised by your chiropractor. The first exercise is the
pelvic tilt. This helps stabilize your hips and support your lower back.
It also helps build foundational strength for more complex core exercises. Start by lying down on your back, with
knees bent. Place your hands beside your hips, with
palms facing down. Tighten your abdomen while pressing the small of your back
against the floor, to create a pelvic tilt, then release. Next up are lying hip
thrusts. These increase core stability and strengthen your glutes, which could help
you also maintain a healthy and pain-free lower back. Start by lying down on your back with knees bent. Place your hands beside your hips with palms facing down. Raise your abdomen upwards – a straight line should be formed from knees to shoulders. Tighten your glutes and core to create a smooth motion, then release. If you find this exercise too difficult,
consult with your chiropractor to determine if pelvic tilts may be more appropriate. The last lumbar exercise is the superman,
which helps engage the muscles around the spine. Strengthening these muscles
helps improve posture and can help relieve back pain. Start by lying face down with your arms
stretched forward, palms down. Begin by tightening your abdomen, keeping your
shoulder blades tucked down and squeezed together. Tighten your glutes while
lifting your arms and feet off the ground, then release. Thank you for joining us today. Remember The Joint Chiropractic is more than just a solution for back pain, it’s your key to a healthy lifestyle.
