With these exercises for lumbago, you’ll actively ease the pain yourself.

Lumbago often comes on unexpectedly, bringing severe back pain. Are you barely able to move because of the pain and reliant on help from other people? When the pain is acute, there’s not much you can do. Rest is the order of the day. As soon as you’re relatively free from pain when you move, it’s important to start moving and begin with the lumbago exercises. Stimulating the tense areas can help you heal faster. You’ll prevent tightness and ideally stop lumbago coming back in the future.

Your lumbago exercise program:
  • Myofascial self-massage
  • Triggering deep stress points
  • Mobilization and stretching exercises
  • Exercises for activation and strengthening
2-3 times a week

Perform the exercise protocol two to three times a week.

Get well soon!

By doing the following lumbago exercises, you can fight the potential causes of this excessive tightness and make sure it doesn’t come back, keeping you free from back pain in the long term.

Myofascial self-massagefor lumbago

Using even pressure with self-massage techniques helps bring more nourishment to the surrounding fascia. The aim is to reduce muscle tension, restoring balance in the lumbar spine and hips and thereby alleviating pain.

Massage for lumbago: relaxes your hip flexor

Lie down on your stomach. Your arms should be positioned in front of your body with your palms facing down; rest your head loosely on the backs of your hands. Place BALL 12 above your groin, between the top of your hip bone and your straight abdominal muscles.

Releasing deep muscle tension associated with lumbago

After your myofascial self-massage, use the BLACKROLL® TRIGGER TMX® to activate your deep fascial adhesions. The targeted pressure helps release tension deep in your lumbar spine region.

Lumbago trigger exercise: releases a tense lumbar spine

Start by lying down on your back, positioning the TRIGGER against the painful spot on your lumbar spine. Stretch out your legs. Important to know: place the TRIGGER on your muscles, not on the bones of your lumbar spine.

Activation and strengthening exercisesfor lumbago

You should only do the strength exercises after self-myofascial techniques (SMT) and mobilization/stretching exercises. In other words, once you’ve already noticeably reduced tension in your back muscles using exercises. Weak and inactive muscles tend to become overly tense. You can even out muscular imbalances by doing targeted exercises for activation and strengthening. Important to know: focus on the target muscles when doing this exercise.

Lumbago exercise: activates your glutes

Start by lying down on your back with your feet planted on the floor and a LOOP BAND just above your knees. Rest your arms on the ground alongside your body.
