Back Exercise: Pelvic Tilt
Lie on back with knees bent, feet flat and legs shoulder width apart. Imagine a glass of water on your belly button. Tilt your pelvis to spill the water onto your chest. Hold for 5 seconds. Relax. Repeat for 2 sets of 20 repetitions.
This exercise is most effective for individuals with back pain associated with arthritis, disc degeneration and stenosis
This exercise helps to activate and strengthen the abdominals and stabilizers of the lower back. Strengthening these muscles will help provide stability and support to the lower back, as well as reduce the strain on your back when moving and lifting objects.
Do not perform this exercise if it increases pain, numbness or tingling in the low back or down the leg.
