Lower Back Pain Back Flexion Stretches

AskDoctorJo30 Jul 2016

These lower back pain stretches use back flexion stretches to help open up the joint spaces in the back to take pressure off the nerves. There are also some hamstrings and calves stretches to prevent pulling on the pelvis and spine, which can cause back pain.

If you are having some stiffness in your lower back, or if you have been diagnosed with spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease (DDD), these stretches will help relieve some pain. These will also help if you are having some numbness or tingling down one of your legs. Sometimes pain in the hips, knees, and even feet can actually be coming from your back.
