    What helped my low back pain more than anything is using the movement of the prone instability test as an exercise

    Repeated leg lifts as there (30+).
    Hamstrings , gluts, and spine extensors. Be carefull though...
    Ps delete the space before youtube in the link.

    So yesterday my back got progressively worse to the point where I had to lay on the lounge room floor for w while. Turns out this...

    I was better today after a decent rest, but I still went to the chiro this afternoon - a couple of painful adjustments, but Iíve already improved loads. Thankfully itís muscular rather than a disc compression or anything else more severe.

    Bizarrely, I think it was my glute exercises that might have contributed too, though.

    Also bizarrely, I canít feel any pain or tension in the location of my tendinopathy anymore. Iím now wondering if the pain I was feeling there was actually referral from my back being on the verge of giving out. Who knows...

    MRI on my tendinopathy on Monday - thatíll tell us whatís really going on.

    Sometimes a nerve irritation in the lower back can actually cause you to lift or loose pressure on the corresponding heel. Same with sitting in hard surface chair with your feet flat on the floor and knees at 90 degrees, you'll actually be lifting your corresponding hip slightly. My pilates instructor would have me do a few excercises, like stand on a block with my heels off the edge and raise and lower my heels together and independently with arms out forward and/or sitting on the floor arms & legs out straight in front legs flat on the floor and "walking" forward on my butt by shifting my hips. Seemed to reacquaint my body with exerting down pressure in both areas and thereby realign the lower spine. Before felt a bit like a weak leg and after all was much better.

    This reminds me of something said on here once about someone having a well fitting bicycle but not knowing how to sit on it properly. There are so many things that should be automatic, like sitting, standing, walking etc. that we all do slightly differently and some of us do them differently enough to cause issues.
