Relieving Pain in the Lower Back
(YouTube, 2012)
So, as we know, increasing flexibility definitely decreases risk of injury, so this next exercise is a stretch for the
lower back. It’s a ‘rotator stretch’, and what we’re gonna do, we’re gonna lie down on the mat and with our
knees bent, we’re gonna bring our knees to the left while keeping our torso straight, and this is going to really
stretch the lower back.
And we’ll do the same thing on the other side. Ideally you wanna hold this stretch for about forty-five seconds
to a minute. So I’ll demonstrate how this stretch looks. Lying on my back, I make sure my body is aligned,
keeping my shoulders on the mat, my lower back on the mat
And so what I do now from here is bring my knees to the left, so I’m gonna bring both my knees to the left and
in doing so, I’m keeping my shoulders on the mat. And this ensures that I’m not rotating my torso so much as
my legs and it really gives you a stretch on the lower back.
And so, I wanna hold this ideally about forty-five seconds and then do it on the other side.
So I’ll demonstrate the other side for you. Make sure everything’s aligned, shoulders are on the ground, then
I’m gonna bring the legs over to this side, keeping my shoulders on the ground. Keeping my shoulders planted
on the mat (noise from touching the microphone!) it really stretches the lower back. So you wanna avoid any of
this; you wanna keep it all on the mat, which really ensures that you’re stretching your lower back. So we’re
holding this for forty-five seconds, and then you bring it back and you can repeat one or two times just
depending on how good it feels and how much time you have.
And that’s the rotator stretch. It’s a stretch that really gets into the lower back to help reduce back pain.
