Back Pain

When you injure your back, people will often tell you that you have to strengthen your abdominals. If this is not explained correctly, most would take the statement that you need to strengthen your stomach muscles and start performing sit-ups.The statement is correct, but doing sit ups while you have back pain will actually increase your pain considerably. What we mean is that you need to increase your Transverse Abdominus strength. This is a very deep muscle that directly supports your lumbar spine. People with lower back pain often have a very week TVA and therefore they have nothing to stabilizing their spine when playing sports or when lifting for example.

Benefits of exercising these muscles:
Increase the strength of your spinal stabilizer muscles, therefore reducing the occurrence of pain
Improve the strength and tone of your abdomen
May improve incontinence or post pregnancy issues
