The first one of these stretches is called the Knee to Chest, and the proper position for it is laying down on your back and have your feet and especially the toes pointed at the ceiling. Then, start bending one of your knees and pulling it to your chest. Before you start pulling, wrap your arms around your shin, and then you’re ready to pull. Hold your leg like that for about 20 seconds, and then extend your leg to its previous position and repeat the process three times for each of your legs. This stretch can align your pelvis and stretch the read end muscles as well as your lower back.
The second stretch is called the Lying Knee Twist, and you do it by lying on your back and having your legs extended all the way. Then, start bending one of the knees up and over the leg that stays below it. Hold it like that until you start feeling that your muscles are stretching, and hold it there for about 20 seconds. Repeat three times for each of your legs, and you’ll have your paraspinal muscles stretched and your abdominal muscles strengthened.
The third one is called the Cobra Stretch, and in order to complete it, you have to lye flat on your stomach with your arms in front of you with the lower arm on the ground. Use it to push your upper body up, but not your lower body, and go up as much as you can, all the way until you start feeling the stretching, hold it like that for about 10 seconds, and then return to your starting position. Repeat this five times, and you’ll have great abdominal muscles and strong lower back. If you can’t do this, try strengthening your arms first.
These are just some of the top home stretches that could relieve you of your back pain. Make sure you warm yourself up before you start doing them, and after you begin, you’ll start feeling the pain go away and your mood improve.
