A lot of folks come to me with back problems — some as young as 25 and, of course, plenty of others in their later years. To help them, I’ve had a great deal of success with the program outlined here.
In the interest of full disclosure, my go-to guy is Dr. Stuart McGill, professor of spine biomechanics at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. He is considered one of the foremost experts in the world on back strengthening and improvement.
These exercises can be worked in both the strengthening phase as well as a treatment phase for people with back pain.
Remember: These are focused on the muscles and tendons that surround the spine.
Write to me if you have specific questions or want to go further. Bottom line: If you have back issues, always start with your doctor to find out exactly what is going on.
