What causes low back pain?

  • Inactivity such as prolonged sitting or a long night’s sleep
  • Weak abdominal muscles
  • Strained or overused back muscles
  • Degenerated discs due to aging, osteoporosis, or arthritis
  • Ruptured or compressed discs
  • Stenosis, Sciatica, Scoliosis
  • Previous injury
  • And the list goes on!

Whatever the cause, several options to relieve low back pain have proven to be helpful: exercise, stretching, OTC pain relievers, heat or icing, message, acupuncture, shots, therapy and hopefully as a last resort, surgery. All have provided some form of low back pain relief to many.

However, often, just a dedicated daily stretching program can be a tremendous help to relieve the low back pain you may be experiencing. Just be sure to do it daily and give it three weeks to see major improvements.

Give this progression of low back stretches a try and after you have finished three weeks daily, let me know if you see an improvement.
