Lower Back Pain: Video Guide



Low back pain (LBP) is a common disorder and something we see regularly at Summit. Pain can vary from a dull constant ache to a sudden sharp feeling. The symptoms of low back pain usually improve within a few weeks from the time they start, with 40-90% of people completely better by six weeks. In most episodes of low back pain a specific mechanism is known and can be identified, the pain experienced it then described as mechanical and therefore as a result of a muscle or joint strain.

We have put together 3 videos that we think will help you manage your lower back pain. We have followed a very simple approach with the videos we want to help you release the tightness, target a specific group of muscles and finally put that into a normal movement pattern.

The 3 exercises are below, firstly a release exercise to minimise any tightness within the lower back called a muscle energy technique (MET). Secondly an exercise to target a specific muscle group (glutes) to help improve your lower back pain in this case a Glute Bridge. Finally, a movement based exercise to help you control your lower back and decrease any pain, A Standing Bow.
