Lying lateral leg raises - Strengthening Exercise for Lower Back Pain

The hip abductor muscles help to raise your leg to the side, away from your body. They also help support your pelvis when you’re standing on one leg.

When these muscles are weak, it can affect balance and mobility. It can also cause low back pain due to instability.

Muscles worked: gluteus medius

  1. Lie on one side, keeping your lower leg slightly bent on the ground.
  2. Engage your core by drawing your belly button in toward your spine.
  3. Raise your top leg without moving the rest of your body.
  4. Hold for 2 seconds at the top. Repeat 10 times.
  5. Repeat on other side. Perform 3 sets on each side.
