Criss-cross, single leg stretch and dead bug are commonly recommended to activate lumbar stabilizing muscles. They’re shown to be effective fast. As a matter of fact, they are found to be helpful in both healthy persons as well as chronic low back pain sufferers in the initial exercise session.

As with everything OrthoIllinois Chiropractic does to relieve McHenry back pain, patient tolerance and physical ability are taken into account. A new study of four stabilization exercises counting the dead bug exercise decided that a graded and suitable lumbar stabilization exercise program customized to the individual back pain sufferer may be an effective way to strengthen back muscles. Researchers discovered that as the intensity of such stabilizing exercises rose so too did the activity of the related stabilizing muscles significantly.
