Here’s the deal. I’ve had lower back pain for ca. 8 years. The symptoms have always been the same – I do some activity and afterwards my lower back seizes up and loosens off over the next few days. I’ve never had a definitive diagnosis until today. I went to see a chiro and after he took some x rays. They showed I have a fusion to my pelvis and also spondylolysis. Hopefully I finally have a reason for my years of pain! The chiro is gonna use some decompression and readjustment work on me. After reading up on this condition it seems to explain why I am extension sensitive. What do people suggest I do to build up the core strength that will help me stay in the right positions?
Planks, planks and more planks! I am a big fan of the holds as a base core builder. Regular, side planks, shoulder bridges,etc. My physio always recommends working for 10 reps of a 10 sec hold; a bit of trembling is ok, but as soon as you lose your form or start to actually wobble, stop. You want to be solid for the full hold.
Hi Jeanette – thanks for your reply. I will definitely start working on the planks and look for a pilates instructor in my area.
