Often with back pain, we wake up stiff and sore. We can also have back pain at the end of a long day. These simple back stretches may help no matter when back pain strikes.
Starting off with pelvic tilts and bridges not only get the back stretched out, but they also work the muscles too to help them relax.
Knee to chest and trunk rotations are great to get some of the muscles in the low and mid back stretched and loosened up.
Finally, an active assisted hamstring stretch will loosen up your legs and your back and pelvic area as well.
