Best Exercise to Relieve Low Back Pain: Marching Bridge

The Marching Bridge Core Stability Physical Therapy Exercise Described By Toronto Physical Therapist Dev Chengkalath:

An important component in low back pain rehabilitation is to stabilize the spine and pelvis while mobilizing the hips.

The marching bridge is an excellent exercise that accomplishes both the above goals while being a bit tougher than the basic bridge.

Start by lying on your back, both knees bent and your hands by your sides.

From this position, brace your abdominal muscles (core) without pushing your belly out or sucking it in. Basically, keep your stomach tight.

Contract your buttocks as you lift your hips off the ground and drive them towards the ceiling. Don’t let your pelvis shift side to side.

Focus on keeping your torso in the same position throughout the movement while moving exclusively through your hips.

Don’t sag or move through your back at all.

While squeezing through your glutes, try to keep your hamstrings or back of your thighs as relaxed as possible.

Remember to breath normally.

At the top position, lift one leg up, keeping the knee bent and then return it back to the ground. Alternate between left and right legs while keeping the hips up, core tight and torso rigid.

Once you’ve completed your desired number of reps, return to the starting position.

Key points:

-only work in your pain free range
-keep your abdominals tight for the whole exercise
-all bridging movements should take place at the hips
-squeeze your glutes as your drive your pelvis up
-keep your hamstrings as relaxed as possible
-at the top of the marching bridge, alternate lifting your bent knees
-breathe normally throughout the exercise

Matchbox 20 – Back 2 Good (without middle bridge/chorus)

Its nothing, its so normal you
Just stand there I could say so much
But I dont go there cuz I dont want to
I was thinking if you were lonely
Maybe we could leave here and no one would know
At least not to the point that we would think so

Everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking about
Somebody else
Its best if we all keep it under our heads
I couldnt tell, if anyone here was feeling
The way I do
But Im lonely now, and I dont know how
To get it back to good

I dont mean that, you own me
This aint no good, in fact its phony
As hell
But things worked out just like you wanted too
If you see me out you dont know me
Try to turn your head, try to give me some room
To figure out just what Im going to do

And everyone here, hates everyone here for
Doing just like
They do
Its best if we all keep this quite instead
And I couldnt tell, why everyone here was
Doing me like
They do
But Im sorry now, and I dont know how
To get it back to good

Everyone here, is wondering what its like to be with
Somebody else
Everyone heres to blame, everyone here
Gets caught up in the pleasure of the pain,
Everyone hides
Shades of shame, but looking inside were the same, were
The same
And were all grown now, but we dont know
To get it back to good

Everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking bout
Somebody else
Its best if we all keep this under our heads
I couldnt tell, if anyone here was feeling
The way I do
But its over now, and I dont know how, its over now
Theres no getting back to good
