Low Back Herniated Disc Injuries- Sloppy Push Ups – Vancouver and Burnaby Physiotherapist


Start by lying flat on the ground, on a yoga
mat or a firm bed. For the beginning stages of this exercise,
lift your upper chest off the ground by supporting yourself on your forearms. Take a deep breathe out to make sure your
low back is relaxed in this position and your hips are on the ground. Stay here for 10 seconds, then lower and repeat. To make this exercise harder, put your hands
out in front of your head and push up from your hands instead of your forearms. This will help lift your chest even further
off the ground and get more extension through the low back. It’s still important that you are able to
relax the back and glute muscles in this position. If you can’t do this, or if your hips come
off the ground, you should revert back to the first stage of this exercise. Once again, stay here for 10 seconds & return
to the ground. Do this for 30 repetitions, 3 times daily.
