Lower back pain is something that affects many people and can cause serious problems when it comes to living an active lifestyle. As we age, out lower back can become prone to injury if we don’t take necessary steps to strengthen it and keep it flexible. We use our lower backs everyday, most of which we don’t realize and it is this constant use that can cause issues if we aren’t careful.

Remember to only do movements that you feel comfortable with and that do not cause pain or discomfort. If you have severe pain in you lower back be sure to consult your doctor first before attempting these movements.
