Stretches That Can Help Relieve Back Pain

Back pain can have many causes. In addition to stretching your lower back at home, consider visiting a spine doctor in Miami for an accurate diagnosis of the underlying problem. Daily stretching can complement your doctor’s recommended treatment plan for your back pain. To see a demonstration of one effective stretch for back pain, watch this featured video.

You’ll see how this person lies flat on the floor on his back. He brings one knee up toward his chest and holds it there by gripping the lower leg just underneath the knee. While holding this stretch for about five seconds, it’s important to keep the abdominal muscles contracted. This helps the lower back press flat against the floor. Then, repeat the stretch with your other leg.
