Low-Back Series with Dr. Ashley Agcaoili | Part 2

  • October 29, 2018

If you’ve read part 1 of this series, we emphasized the importance of hip stability and mobility and its relationship to low-back pain.


Our hip joint is classified as a “ball and socket” joint and should be able to move in multiple planes of motion: frontal (abduction/adduction) and transverse (flexion and extension).

Without this, our low backs take up the slack which can be the source of many low back pain conditions.


This being said, the glute bridge is another hip exercise that you can do to challenge both the frontal and transverse planes of the hip joint to help reduce low back pain. 

This is Dr. Ashley, let me know if the exercises help!
