Pelvic tilts, Supermans, Bridges, and Planks are all exercises that are very low to minimal impact to your lower back without compromising and disc bulges, degeneration, or injuries that you may have sustained. There are more advanced exercises, but there are a few basic lower back, core building, supportive exercises that will go well with any type of chiropractic adjustment.
