  1. I started doing these in the pool at my gym minus a couple. Ill be doing these as often as I can. First back/ab/oblique workouts on the mat, then some rubber cable for core/back, then walk 3 or more miles, and lastly these pool exercises. Do yourselves a favor and buy a tens stem machine and a good PT icepack.

  2. This video makes me realise India still has to go a long way in health care. I have been suffering from bulging disc from Nov 2017. physio didn't work for me, yoga didn't work for me and chiro did make it better but I still have a long way to go. Finally in 2019 I had to travel from.chandigarh to Delhi as apparently only Spinal injuries centre is the only hospital in the entire country offering hydrotherapy. No other state in the country has functiontal hydrotherapy dept. Just disappointed that I am at home because of this issue which is getting worse and I have visited hundreds of doctors in different states. Thanks for this video, am going to try these excercises now.

  3. There are several factors in relieving sciatica pain at home. One plan I discovered which succeeds in merging these is the Makalls remedy plan (google it if you're interested) without a doubt the no.1 guide that I've heard of. Check out all the super info .

  4. Absolutely the best swimming pool exercise for lower back pain I have found is THIS:

    In water over your head, with your feet dangling straight down, grab the edge of the pool, facing the pool wall, keeping your hands a foot apart or so. Staying symmetrical while facing the pool wall, OPEN your legs fairly rapidly in a split, against the resistance of the water. The object is to make it a WIDE split, opening strongly, and closing them again in a sort of "scissors-kick", bringing your legs together. Opening and closing is 1 rep.

    OPEN, and close again, trying to open the legs WIDE, EVENLY and STRAIGHT, against the water's resistance. It is the OPENING part, against resistance, that really strengthens the lower back, bigtime. Don't overdo it at first, and stop when the muscles feel tired. I do 5 or 6 sets of 30+ reps each, every day, although it took me a while to work up to that, as the muscles strengthened and the pain DECREASED over several weeks.

    If you have access to a pool, and you suffer from chronic lower back pain (bottom 2 vertebrae especially), THIS IS THE EXERCISE FOR YOU!!
