Low Back Pain and Equilibrium Workouts

Tags:  

1. Easy (Level 1): Standing eyes open/closed - Start with the feet carry width apart, look directly ahead to get your balance then close the eyes and attempt not to sway counting to 30 by, "... one thousand one, one thousand 2, one thousand 3, and so on" Repeat this with your feet better together until they touch each various other. You can make this tougher by standing on a pillow or cushion-- but don't start that way!

Medium (Level 2): Lunges - from a similar starting position as # 1, step forwards with one leg and squat slightly before returning back to the start position. You can even hold onto light dumbbells and/or close your eyes to make it more difficult.3. Hard (Level 3): Rocker or wobble board exercises - utilize a platform that rocks back & forth or, wobbles in several instructions. Rock back and forth, eyes open and then closed, as soon as you get comfy on the board. You can turn your body on the board, standing directly ahead (12 o'clock) followed by 45 degree angles as you work your way around in a circle at 45 degree increments (12, 1:30, 3, 4:30, 6, 7:30, 9, 10:30 and back to noon). Repeat these eyes open and closed. The Wii Balance board is an enjoyable way to work out-- check that out.You can "improvise" and mix different workouts and create your very own routine. Simply remember, remain safe, work slowly until you develop your self-confidence and keep challenging yourself.
