Lumbar spine problem
An_256879 posted:
I need comments on exercise that works around the lower back. I have calcification in a lace like pattern attached to 3 vertebra in the lumbar area from which I get sciatica. If I do crunches it only makes the problem worse. I am now doing planks which seems to be good. Any thoughts? Upper body exercises are fine.
