Editorial Reviews

New York's Annette Fletcher turns her muscle-maintenance awareness to the challenge of protecting and strengthening the lower back with this DVD, full of exercises you can do every day to help manage your lower-back pain and prevent future problems caused by a sedentary lifestyle, poor posture, or poor movement habits.

Annette Fletcher's Stretch and Joint Mobility and her Perfect-in-Ten: Stretch have won wide acclaim and many fans around the world.

In The Save Your Lower Back video program, Annette focuses on the two major areas affected by a sedentary lifestyle and poor postural and movement habits: The lower back and hips. While chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy are excellent for the temporary relief of pain and discomfort caused by long hours at the desk or driving, the only permanent method of preventing future problems is to strengthen your muscles and train them to support your spine, hip bones, and joints in the alignment necessary to keep your posture straight, and to stretch your muscles to extend your range of motion through simple everyday exercises. So even if you regularly invest in chiropractic adjustments and massage, you need to exercise on your own to strengthen and condition your muscles to maintain the benefits of these therapies.

Annette has structured the Save Your Lower Back program as a 40-minute three-part exercise flow:

Release: You will start by lengthening, releasing and relaxing your spine and lower back to relieve the discomfort of lower back pain and prepare your body for stretching exercises. Never stretch muscles that are tight: First relax and release them.

Strengthen: Strengthening exercises tone and condition your muscles to support optimal body alignment and healthy posture, to prevent further damage to your lower back and spine.

Stretch: Stretching exercises will work to restore the length of muscles shortened by a sedentary lifestyle and restore your range of motion in order to prevent injury, and deterioration of spine and hip joints.

The video also includes a correct posture tutorial to teach you how to check your posture and correct your alignment to keep away everyday aches and pains.

So join Annette and take a little bit of time every day to work on the health of your spine and your hips. You'll be glad you did.

Modern life is hell on our backs. Between the computer and the TV our poor backs are getting stiff and weak, a sitting duck for injury, sitting (or shlumping!) being the operative word. "Save Your Lower Back" with Annette Fletcher is a wonderful antidote, and your whole body will thank you, as it stretches and strengthens not just the back but the muscles around the back, and it just makes you feel wonderful all over.

This DVD is made for ordinary people. No matter what kind of shape you're in, you'll get the most out of it. And at 45 minutes (this includes a tutorial of your muscles, as well as an excellent teaching segment on posture) it isn't overwhelming. As a senior, I can vouch for it being perfect for keeping flexibility in a body that if left alone quickly gets creaky and stiff. Along with going to the gym, I'm going to use this DVD regularly, because it really makes me feel fabulous, and you can feel fabulous at any age!

Favorite moves include the breaststroke, and the final heavenly hip stretch. If like me, you find sitting cross-legged hard on your knees, the one exercise that has this position I did with my legs straight out, about a foot apart, and got a lot out of the stretch. Always modify according to what your body can do.

Annette is an expert teacher and knows how to explain each move perfectly. The exercises don't take much room (as much as arms width and full length with your arms stretched overhead) and you'll need a towel or mat for the floor and a towel folded for your head. Quick, simple and effective, this DVD is great!

I found "Save Your Lower Back," a totally effective and user friendly program which alleviates common issues of the lower back, hips and thighs. Best yet, it is gentle enough for anyone who can sit on the floor and use gentle stretching. I find myself using this program several times a week and I wish to recommend it to anyone who leads a sedentary lifestyle which can shorten important muscles groups. In turn, it appears I found relief for my sciatica issues.

This program brings awareness to stabilizing the psoas muscle and those surrounding. Strengthening the core means a strong healthy back and strong thighs. The program begins with relaxation of the muscles of the lower back allowing them to relax so that strengthening exercises can become effective. The concept here is, "how can you strengthen tight muscles?" These exercises allow chiropractic adjustments and massages to become more effective, of which I am a huge fan.

The 45 minute program includes these sections: Annette's welcome, an illustrated explanation of the location and function of the muscles of the lower back and hips; floor stretches which focus on releasing, strengthening, and stretching the hips, shoulders, lumbar area and lower back.

I have used all of Annette Fletchers previous programs with positive results, and this now is my favorite.

I am in my mid-40s, and over the past few years, I have had several episodes of lower back pain. Given this, I thought this DVD would be helpful to add to my collection. Instructor Annette Fletcher is a certified Pilates instructor, certified personal trainer, and modern dancer. She incorporates some elements of both Pilates and yoga into this stretch workout, but she moves at a very slow, measured pace. Fletcher is featured working out alone and providing live instruction.

The Main Menu offers options for Welcome, Muscles of the Lower Back & Hips, Release, Strengthen, Stretch, Posture; there is also additional information on Fletcher and her DVDs plus credits and disclaimer. The Welcome and Muscles are each brief overview segments provided by Fletcher. I have given descriptions of the remaining segments below:

RELEASE (5.5 minutes)
Fletcher begins lying in constructive rest, simply allowing gravity to release the psoas muscles. Next comes knee in, other leg moving out extensions. This is followed by stretching the arms overhead while keeping the pelvic area stable.

STRENGTHEN (18 minutes)
Lying on the back, Fletcher starts this segment with a pelvic tilt, moving into several different bridge variations. Coming into seated, she performs a half roll back to release the spine. Next, she moves to the hands and knees for scapular isolations. Remaining in this position, she performs leg lifts, then moves into alternating arms and legs. Coming down onto her side, Fletcher performs side leg raises, circles, and small kicks. To finish, she comes onto her stomach for leg lifts, breast stroke, and elbow plank.

STRETCH (11 minutes)
Fletcher starts this segment on hands and knees for cat/cow stretches, adding a knee in and up.

I absolutely agree with the previous reviewer. This is a dvd for every level. Unlike her previous Joint Mobility dvd, which could be difficult for older adults and the inflexible, these exercises can be done by anyone at any age. Everything is done at a relaxed and easy pace. If you are looking for a dvd for a sore, tight back or a tired back from sitting at a computer all day, then this is the dvd for you.
