Lower Back Stretches

This month we have been talking about the lower back. Here are some stretches that can help you with lower back discomfort.

Gluteal stretch

  • Take your knee to your chest, hug and hold.

Piriformis stretch

The sciatic nerve runs very close to this muscle and some cases of sciatica are caused by the nerve getting trapped at this point.

  • Lie on your back. To stretch the left piriformis put your left heel on your right knee.

  • Put your hands through the hole created with your legs and wrap them around your thigh to bring both legs to the chest. You should feel a stretch in your left buttock area.

Spinal twist

• Lie on the floor with your knees up and your feet flat on the floor. Your arms are outstretched.

  • On the out breath gently take your knees towards one side while turning your head slowly the other way.

  • Just let your knees go as far as is comfortable to feel a gentle stretch in the spine.
