The Lx Cobra exercise is an excellent way to stretch and strengthen the lower back. This exercise is performed on a flat surface and can be performed at home. Here’s how to do it properly:
Lie face down on a flat surface, such as a rug or yoga mat.
Place your hands on your lower body, near your hips, with your palms facing down and your fingers pointing forward.
Gently lift your upper body, using the muscles of your lower back. Keep your hips on the floor and don’t use your arms to propel yourself.
Hold this elevated position for 20 seconds, breathing deeply and relaxed.
Then relax your muscles and lower your body to the surface.
Repeat the exercise 3 times, taking short breaks between each repetition.
Remember to maintain a proper posture and not exert excessive pressure on the lower back. If you feel any pain or discomfort during exercise, stop and consult your chiropractor for further guidance.
