Before diving into the exercises it is important to distinguish between different types of back pain and injury.

It could also be chronic due to having back pain while having poor posture throughout the day or while we are completing heavy activities such as running, lifting, yoga, etc.
Causes of Back Pain
Decrease strength and stability
Injury to other joints (hips, knees, ankles)
Signs/Symptoms of Back Pain
Radiating pain/numbness or tingling down the back of the leg
Worsening pain with bending, lifting, standing/walking, or sitting
