Injury to the lumbar spine can happen at the most unexpected times. Many times, the fault is a lack of abdominal activation and lumbar stability. When we move quickly and the spine is unprepared for a new force or stress damage can occur to the intervertebral discs or spinal ligaments. To prevent injury it is important to reinforce the support structure of the lumbar spine, including the abdominal musculature. Dr. Brooks will take you through a pelvic tilt exercise that can be used to train spine supporting core muscles. Practice this technique in sets of 15-20 repetitions daily. I recommend 3×15 – 5 days a week.
