Lower back pain is very popular in bodies. Please speak with your physical therapist before attempting these exercises. 
Physical therapy uses a collection of methods to help a body feel better. Movement combinations, massage, stimulating the muscle, chiropractic adjustments, dry needling are all examples of physical therapy techniques.
Physical therapists, also known as PT’s, are educated to create unique plans for each patient. The plan goals are to decrease pain by strengthening the body. In some instances, care is used to release knots, or trigger points in the body. Sometimes these knots create a lot of pain. Often times, patients believe there is more going on with their bodies when it can be a constricted, tight muscle. Treatment can include exercise, stretches, and education on pain.
The following three common physical therapy exercises address lower back pain. They have been designed to reduce tightness in tense muscles and fortify weaker ones. Usually, strengthening muscles can restore necessary balance of the body. That balance helps to restore your body to a more natural state.
