Lower Back Pain After Squats – Active Spinal Decompression

Lower Back Pain After Squats – Active Spinal Decompression

Here are some strategies to help you deal with lower back pain after doing squats. Barbell squats and back pain are typically associated because barbells tend to put vertical pressure on the spine. Leaving tissues like the psoas and lumbar erectors to pull downward facilitating a compression on the trunk. By employing the techniques in this video, you will get a better idea of how to take this tension off of the lumber and place it on areas meant to support the body functionally. Whether you choose to continue to do this exercise or not is up to your discretion. All we are doing here are fanning the flames so that people do not hurt themselves too badly.

    Hello 🙂
    Thank you for this video. I speak french so maybe I didn’t understand everything you said but just a question : Why not put some weight at the top of the head (like a bag with sand in it for example) to have a better alignment of the entire spine, and do an active exhale which begin by a pelvic floor contraction instead of doing this sort of paradoxal breathing? To have the connection between TVA and diaphragm, isn’t important to incorporate the pelvic floor also and make it go up the same way as the diaphragm does during an active exhale to decompress le spine? Sorry for my English, I hope you understand what I mean…
