Glute Activation for Lower Back Pain - Glute Strengthening Exercise

If you have lower back pain in the form of aches and niggles that isn't caused by a spinal misalignment or nerve compression from a slipped disc it could mean that you have weak glutes (muscles in the bottom). As a lot of us sit on our bums all day the glutes can get quite weak and over stretched, when this happens the lower back erector muscles start to take over the job of the glutes thus causing lower back pain. Nine times out of ten if you work at strengthening your glutes you can completely eradicate your lower back pain.

If you are under consultancy for a back condition please make sure you seek advice before doing any new exercises.

I am currently offering online Pilates classes and online Pilates Personal Training via Zoom. I can help with injury rehabilitation, pain relief, postural alignment and general fitness. Please get in touch for details.
