Shown above are several strategies that can be effective in reducing low back pain or pain that refers down the leg. Some common presentations of such pain include (but are not limited to): • Shifting away from the painful leg when required to stand for long durations, • Pain in the butt when bending the neck and trunk upon entering a car, • Reproduction of pain when crossing your leg to put your sock on • Soreness in low back and/or leg when bending down to pick something up. _ Notice from the video that a couple of the solutions to the above problems are actually doing those motions themselves. The 🔑 is graded exposure--gently and gradually acclimating yourself to these movements while minimizing pain exacerbation. _ For certain individuals, symptoms can be successfully resolved or significantly reduced with a combination of repeated trunk extensions, comfortably introducing load/resistance and nerve flossing. As always, the degree of intensity and frequency varies from person to person and everyone is different so it's best to get checked out in person to see what works best for your particular symptoms. _ What movements have you found to be successful for your referred pain?
