Do you have low back pain? Would you like to enjoy not having back pain? Chronic low back pain has many causes that often have the same solution. This means getting your pelvis and spine back to their neutral position. The stretch below helps kill many birds with one stretchy stone. This exercise stretches both the muscles in the front of the lower body (bottom leg) and those on the backside (top leg) of the lower body. These muscles often become tight from the seated positions we take for hours every day and in turn pulls our bodies out of alignment. Try it for a few months and see.
Hold the stretch for two minutes on each side, at least 3 days per week
