Abdominal Exercises

  • Strong abdominal muscles may actually prevent you from incurring a back injury, since these muscles are so critical to maintaining your spine's position, as well as assisting you with lifting.
  • Strong abdominals can also lower, minimize, or avoid back pain from excessive strains, help your body deal with sudden bouts of stress, and play an important role in healing after spine surgery or a debilitating back injury.

Here is a simple exercise for strengthening your abdominals:

  • Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor.
  • Tighten your abdominal muscles and tilt your pelvis backward, pushing your lower back toward the floor.
  • Hold 5 seconds, then relax.
  • Do 20 repetitions.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "Had my first appointment with Dr Brad today. I had left lower back pain, left hip and upper left thigh pain. He diagnosed the problem almost immediately and went to work in me. He poked, prodded, used several machines and cracked every bone in my back and neck! He went through thoroughly and explained what he was doing either before or after it did a procedure. After over a year in pain, I walked out 98% pain free. I am going back Friday for a follow up.
    And get this-true to his word he just called me to follow up (it’s 7pm). We chatted a few minutes and he thanked ME!

    He and his staff were not only casual but totally professional and very very cordial and friendly and it’s like i’ve known them for years. So glad God and several others put me into Brad. Fantastic doctor and person! Thanks sir!"

  • "SOOO GRATEFUL for this place!! After being scammed at another chiropractic office who would only “assess” and not actually adjust, I was recommended this clinic by 2 friends! They were incredibly understanding, got me in ASAP and actually adjusted me and well!! They were kind, skilled and efficient, which was important for me as I had to bring my young children and was SO READY to not be in pain anymore!! I’ve been on cloud 9 ever since! Was even more impressed with the phone call follow up I received that evening!! Definitely recommend!!"
