    Hi everyone.

    Looking for people who can help with lower back support.
    Unfortunately when i was about 13 i fractured my L4 vertabrae,
    And have been cursed with pain in lower back ever since. Have veen to physio and meds and a specialist but it always seems to come back. It pretty much connects through my glutes and into my hamstrings. So i find it hard to get a great workout on my hams without them ending up cramping or leaving my lower back in crazy amounts of pain.

    If anyone has tips for great stretches and warmups to help prevent it would be awesome.

    Cheers.

    hows your core strength. id be focusing on transverse abs the bodys natural weight belt strength and control it and it will push your spinal errectors in and the spine up taking pressure of the discs. other wise maybe look at an ab belt from a ortho medical place i have one after a car crash but prefer to train my core, havent used it in 6 months. then there are nerve blocks etc.

    but core is key. m2c

    So it's only hamstrings? Not Quads?

    Pretty much hamstring exercises will trigger my lower back. I can feel it pull tight through my glutes aswell sometimes. If i go back to squating. Once i bump the weight to about 140kg that will almost cripple my lower back and i have to roll around on and exercise ball.

    Ok thought my core was pretty well off but ill probably have to focus a little more and see how much more i can improve on those exercises to increase this natural weight belt.

    I would have to say its actually quite hard to turn it on all the time, but once you get the hang of it you should find a big difference.

    the best explanation I had of it is "do a wee and try to stop it mid stream. thos are the muscles that you need to turn on." :)

    Interestingly enough, I tried reverse hyper extension and pulled my hip and glute muscles, weird injury but where was the pain? Hamstrings.

    I had a great massage today, totally experienced guy, seemed to work on me like I was a Rugby player, but atm, touch wood pain is gone.

    Just hope I can sumo Saturday.

    I have scoliosis myself so I'm always dealing with back and knee and shoulder issues. I purchased and use 2 things that have DRASTICALLY helped me out.

    I'm new to the forum so I'm not sure if i'm allowed to post links? I'll just describe what I use

    1) Inversion table, you strap your feet up and lay back on a flat table that swings yourself to hang upside down. It stretches your spine out to allow more blood flow between the vertebrae. It also strongly stretches out the hip flexors, ribcage and abs. A good Inversion table can cure the apeman forward lean syndrome too haha

    2) Nubax Trio, this one is easier on the body. It stretches you forward so you're not upside down. It solely stretches your back to open up your spine. There's also not as much blood rush to the head like the inversion table.

    If you check on amazon you can purchase the Nubax there and there are hundreds of positive reviews.

    I know a lot of footy players endorse the Nubax device too.
