4 weeks ago, our patient had just finished recovering from lumbar radiculopathy down the front of her left leg. She continued to have pain centered at the lower to mid back which increased with physical labor such as prolonged lifting, bending and squatting. In the first picture, you can see her lumbar spine is unstable when trying to extend the hip even when assistance from the band was given. The second picture is 4 weeks later. She is now able to maintain a stable lumbar spine during several sets of 15 of opposite arm and leg raise in quadruped. She now states she does not have any pain with the activities listed before.
A customized core stability program can drastically improve your tolerance to daily activities and sports in 4 weeks. Pain reduction and decreased risk for injury is the ultimate result.
