In today's fast-paced, convenient world, we seem to have forgotten about the act of standing. Maybe our minds haven't, but our "standing" muscles have most certainly forgotten. Whether you experience hip, sciatic or low back pain; the blame really is the amount we are required to sit on a daily basis.
Don't believe me, do a self-experiement! For one day, keep track of the amount of hours you are in a seated position (eg, at work, in the car/transportation, on the couch, at the dinner table, in a restaraunt, business meeting, etc.).
Inactive glute (booty) muscles are the #1 source for pain experienced in the surrounding joints. Here are a few corrective moves you can practice on your own.
You've tried it all; different shoes, stretches, lumbar supports, oils, massage, cortisone shots etc. The one commonality amongst those methods is all are missing the plank exercise. Once the core is allowed to be lazy, there is no magically device to bring the core back to work. Waking up the core is now in your hands, your lower back and knees will thank you in no time!
