Spinal Exercise Video #6


Doing these exercises up to 3 times per week may be good for your HEALTH.

Only perform to tolerance. If there is any increased pain stop the activity. It may be appropriate to work through some pains under the guidance of a health care professional who has expertise in functional rehabilitation.

If there is any burning pain in to the legs, stop the activity.

Spend about 15 minutes at a time doing the exercises.

Perform all 6 of these exercises and make notes in your booklet.

Were you able to perform the crunch activities without difficulty?

Did you have balance issues with the lunges?

Did your legs shake with the wall squats?

If yes, it is an indication of de-conditioning.

Everyday I see people in the office completely frustrated with where they are with regard to fixing their neck or back pain. I see people who have had surgery and didn’t need it as well as people for whom surgery was recommended and they don’t want it.

If you are frustrated and want straightforward answers, request a consultation and bring your MRI. I will help you understand the problem and what it will take to fix it.
