As we age, the spine is subject to everyday stresses that eventually wear down its structures over time. Specifically, the discs that act as cushions between the spine’s vertebrae begin to shrink and get worn down as their moisture content declines. As a result, the vertebral bones begin to rub against one another, potentially causing back pain and stiffness.
The most common region of the spine to develop problems is the lower back.
This is called the lumbosacral junction. The sacrum and pelvis form the sacroiliac (SI) joints, which are not designed for motion, but for stability. Regardless of the actual cause of the impairment, proper exercise is often the first line of conservative treatment for pain and dysfunction of the vertebral column.
This workout is composed of ten of my favorite spinal stability exercises. If you are someone who has a tough time moving in and out of positions, these exercises will help you train the muscles that help you get there with little or no movement. Spinal stability is a crucial aspect of core training, as we need these muscles to transfer forces from our limbs to our core and keep the vertebral column free from injury. No equipment is needed!
