Why Tight Glutes Leads To Back Pain
In this video, Adam shares a few reasons why tight glutes my lead to back pain and how to alleviate it with a few simple stretches.
The glutes (bottom) and trapezius upper back to neck can lead to back pain and two things will link to this pain:
1. A lack of mobility movement and flexibility.
2. A lack of strength, or weakness or imbalance.
The traps and glutes are also two areas where when we are anxious or stressed they tend to over tighten and therefore put our bodies into imbalance or unease or pain.
Exercise that help develop the glutes and the imbalances are deadlifts, single leg deadlifts, squats, single leg squats and the stretches show in the video as they take into account both the strength and the flexibility of the glutes.
