Of all of the different parts of the body that tend to go through pain regularly, it is the lower back that is really going to suffer the most. There are number of different reasons why this is the case, and depending on why you're having difficulties, you may need to change the type of lower back exercises that you are doing. Here are some of the more common problems that you might have and what to do when you're experiencing them.
One of the first things I'm going to tell you is that it is not always necessary to do lower back exercises because you have an existing problem. When you do these exercises regularly and really build up the muscles in your lower back, you can often forgo many of the problems that people experience. Along with that, you will be strengthening the middle part of your body which can also help you in the abdominal region as well. Make sure that you make lower back exercises a regular part of your exercise routine. Just make sure that you don't overdo it, as you would not want to cause any serious problems for yourself while at the same time, trying to avoid them.
One of the more common reasons why people have pain in the lower back is because of their sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve runs across the back and down both legs. It is one of the largest nerves in the human body. As we age or as we experience trauma to our lower back and surrounding parts of the body, the sciatic nerve can be pinched and this will cause a severe amount of pain. It is referred to as sciatica, and not only is the pain localized but it also tends to radiate out and down the legs. This type of pain usually requires specific exercises that need to be done in the presence of a qualified physical therapist.
