Remember any exercise and movement is good for the lower back as it helps to increase flexibility and increase circulation. Although your back feels painful exercise is good for it and you don’t need to be fearful that it is ‘unstable’ or ‘weak’ although it may feel this way.
Sorry to be gross but when you dissect spines they are very strong even when the muscles are not attached! We have strong ligaments and soft tissues that help to stabilise this highly sensitive structure.
It is important to remember that pain doesn’t always equate to tissue damage.
