Welcome to back injury recovery exercises level 1 to help you get rid of back pain now. I am Caroline Jordan your certified health and fitness coach, and this video is part of my 3 part series to help you re-align and strengthen the muscles around the back for injury recovery and injury prevention. This specific exercise sequence was fundamental in my own personal journey of healing from a serious back injury and I share it with you in hopes that they it help you as well. The entire series of videos is included in my back injury recovery playlist and sequenced together so that you can follow along depending on where you are in your back injury recovery journey.
Most people who suffer a back injury are eager to revisit their regular life duties and hobbies, but rushing back into life is not ideal when pain, scar tissue and weak musculature are present. When rehabilitating the spine, these three principles are important to ensure steady emotions throughout the healing process.
* Breathing is essential not only for life, but also to prevent you from holding onto stress within the musculature. When you feel stressed about your back, take three deep inhales and exhales.
* Acceptance of the present moment ensures that you don’t worry about what happened and what will happen. The human body takes time to rehabilitate and there is no quick fix to re-balancing the muscular system. This principle ensures that steady progression will be met.
*Awareness is important to motor control and movement patterns. When you are aware of your movement or posture, you are better able to break bad habits and realize what motions or positions help or hinder your back.
When medically cleared for back rehab exercises, increasing core strength is vital to reducing back pain and reintegrating movement patterns with better awareness, stability and bracing of the core. Always follow the guidelines prescribed from your medical doctor, surgeon or physical therapist. When you have been medically cleared, my back injury recovery exercise series can be of great benefit to your back post-injury. You can even show your medical team these videos in advance for permission, I have SO many doctors recommending their patients to my work now which is amazing because they are helping their patients use movement as medicine.
