When you’re suffering from lower-back pain, you might feel as if your entire pelvic area is immovable. This stretch can help you start to bring some movement back to this area gently.

 

  1. Begin by lying on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor.
  2. Try to relax your low back, keeping it in a neutral position (which means you should feel a slight curve in your low back if you place the top of your hand under your back).
  3. Turn “on” your core muscles and then flatten your low back against the floor by slightly tilting your pelvis upward.

Repeat 12 to 15 times.
