How To Improve Spine MobilityMar 26, 2020
Let's talk about spine mobility...as a core exercise specialist, I have spent over 15 years working with clients and encouraging them to elongate their spine.
Why? Because by creating this space you will not only stand tall but alleviate low back pain while increasing the mobility in your spine.
This exercise is for anyone who is experiencing their back locking up, low back pain, shoulder pain or neck pain. Remember, everything in your body is connected and the site of the pain is not always the source of the pain.
So, let’s open up that low back!
1. Start by grabbing a chair or countertop.
2. Place your feet right underneath you or shoulder-width apart.
3. Soften your knees so you can start to feel the spreading of your sits bones (bony parts of your bum).
4. Extend your arms, opening up across your chest.
5. On your exhale, start by lightly activating your pelvic floor – almost like you are hugging your body internally.
6. Slowly begin rounding your spine, rolling up one vertebra at a time.
7. Don’t use your glutes or force the movement.
8. As you inhale, bring your head up out of your chest and slowly articulate back down one vertebra at a time.
Repeat this as many times throughout your day as you want/can. It’s a great way to not only increase mobility in your spine but also begin properly activating your pelvic floor and deep core.
