06 Mar 2017 » Keeping your back safe in forward bends
Forward bends can be quite problematic for the lower back, because overly rounding (flexing) the back is probably the most common way in which people sustain lower back injuries. While we often don’t know what actually gets injured when we hurt our lower back, one common injury is the bulging or rupture of an intervertebral disc towards the rear and usually slightly to one side when its front edge is compressed too strongly. Why is that an issue? When a disc bulges or ruptures it can compress a nerve root exiting the spinal cord, triggering significant and even debilitating pain.
