A lot of people suffer from low back pain. And there are many reasons we suffer from back pain. These group into specific and non-specific low back pain.
Specific means we know the exact cause of your back pain (i.e. slipped disc, accident etc). This needs medical attention.
Non-Specific back pain, we can’t exactly point out the reason, it might be from lot of sitting down, poor posture, weak muscles (core, buttocks), tight muscles and so on.
Most of the people suffer from non-specific lower back pain, about 19/20 cases. And the reason behind it is usually a combination of all of the above, they are related anyway:
Sitting down too much -> (leads to) Weaker muscles -> Poor posture
Poor posture -> Weak muscles
Sitting with a poor posture -> Weak and tight muscles
You got the idea.
Today I will share with you a video with stretches to release tension in the lower back area, as well as surrounding muscles, in the case of non-specific lower back pain.
This is also a great stretch for the fascia (a thin membrane which connects everything in the body, I will write about it with another occasion). It’s also great to improve flexibility and mobility around the lower back and not only.
