Core Strength ‘IS’ For Dummies or Just Say NO to Core Exercises

Core Strength
'IS' for
couldn't figure out which title above says it better so I used them both. You DON’T need to exercise your core muscles to strengthen against back pain and, in fact, you shouldn't.  This usually makes your back problem worse by strengthening it into the painful position.

No NO!
But, people often want to do everything they can themselves before turning to a professional for help. This isn't necessarily wrong and, in fact, there are many things you can, and should do yourself to take stress off your back.

Sorry to rant about this but I just saw an advertisement for a seminar on how to treat back problems with core muscle exercises, and I wanted to express another viewpoint.

There’s a longer explanation about why core exercises make your body worse in my e-book, Owner’s Manual for the Body.  Also included is nearly everything you need to learn about how to take care of your back yourself.

All in all, this should be a relief (and more) to all of you who no longer need to put yourself through all of these exercises.
