An amazing exercise for easing out muscular pain in the lower back area is the Child’s Pose Stretch. This is actually a yoga pose called Balasana and is a resting pose, meaning it is relaxed and can be held (rested in) from as little as 30 seconds up to a few minutes.
Follow this linkfor a description of how to do this great stretch.
This shouldn’t cause your back to hurt more than it already does, if your pain increases don’t continue with the stretch and seek some further physiotherapy advice by calling us on 01438 317037.
