Exercise gym ball
Exercise gym ball follow a range of difficulty levels, and the benefits for back pain patients can be felt at each level. From merely sitting on the exercise ball to doing structured aerobic exercise routines, the basic support needed by the back and stomach muscles are the same.
For low back pain, the exercise ball can be used for a variety of purposes, including:
- Find neutral spine position
- Learn proper posture
- Increase lumbar (low back) mobility
- Increase abdominal and back muscles strength
- Increase balance and stability
- Develop overall control and strength of the core body muscles
- Learn to lift properly
Another recommended first step on the exercise ball is to find a neutral (lordotic) lumbar spine position.
- Slouch slightly on the exercise ball, rounding the lower and upper back
- Begin bouncing lightly on the exercise ball
- Allow the body to automatically find the straightened posture, which promotes staying balanced while continuing to bounce on the exercise ball
This balanced position on the exercise ball is also referred to as the center of gravity, where the upper body is balanced on a stable pelvic base. Even a slight change in this neutral posture position will change the center of gravity and require a correction to stay on the exercise ball. The stomach muscles are required to work the entire time to keep this balanced, neutral posture.
- The exercise ball can also be used as a replacement for a chair at work or home. The movement of the exercise ball requires muscular response to keep one’s center of gravity and maintain balance on the ball. This stimulates the deeper trunk muscles (multifidus and transverse abdominus) that are important in supporting the spine, and reduces static loading on any one structure in the spine.
