Back strengthening exercise: Multifidus strengthening on hands and knees.

If you’ve seen me in the clinic, you know one of my favorite back strengthening exercises is the quadruped, alternating arm and leg lifts with a 3-5 second hold.  Make sure you are stable before you began your 3-5 second hold.  Much research has been done on the multifidus musculature and for many of those with lower back pain, that muscle is almost non-existent.  Therefore, strengthening this area is a big step in the right direction to help manage lower back pain.  Check out the video below.
