As you shed pounds to better manage or reverse the symptoms of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, some simple, equipment-free exercises involving the hips can further lower the risk of debilitating back pain from excess weight.
For example, sit near the edge of your chair with your feet flat on the floor, using you abdominal muscles to support your back. Rest your right palm on your right knee and your left hand on your left thigh.
While pressing down with your right palm, exhale and use your abdominals and hip flexors to lift your right foot one to two inches off the floor, feeling resistance from your hand. Hold for a few breaths and then lower. Do five repetitions and then repeat on the left side.
Tip: This exercise targets the nine muscles that facilitate forward movement and helps prevent compression of the lumbar spine.
