Low Back Myths or Truths
Core stabilization exercises are the best thing for acute low back pain. This is a myth. Having good core strength is very helpful in preventing spinal problems long term. Doing core strengthening exercises can easily increase inflammation in the low back of a person with acute back pain. This inflammation causes swelling in the area that can increase pressure on already irritated nerves and other soft tissues.
