Core & Abdominal exercises
Updated: Jul 17, 2019
Here are a few different exercises that can be used to strengthen the core at home - no equipment required!
The exercises range in their difficulty so find an exercise that you can do quite comfortably and then progress onto harder variations.
Remember, core strength is NOT associated with reduced risk of lower back pain. In fact, many people with lower back have an OVERactive core, not an underactive core.
If you find these exercises exacerbate your back pain, stop and choose an exercise that doesn't. If you're still getting pain, discuss with your physiotherapist and they will be able to tailor exercises that will help improve the problem.
