Are weak glutes causing your lower back pain?

Did you know that the glute muscles stabilize your hips and give the lower back support? However, if these muscles are weak, the muscles in your back must overcompensate to stabilize your body, creating undue pressure and tension and stressing the low back.


By activating and strengthening the glute muscles – maximus, medius, minimus- help stabilize the hips and take the strain off of the lower back! Engage these muscles often to prevent lower back pain, knee pain and gluteus medius pain!

We recommend a daily stretching and strengthen routine and to #keepmoving! Book a movement consultation with a Specht Physical Therapist to learn how to #recruittheglutes and reduce lower back!
