This stretch is a bit more challenging, but it can help provide relief for lower back pain.

Begin by standing upright and placing your left foot on a raised surface (such as a chair or stool).

Keep your right leg straight and slowly lean forward until you feel the stretch in the back of your left leg.

Hold for 30 seconds before switching sides and repeating this stretch.

4 – Child’s Pose

This pose is great for introducing a gentle stretch to your lower back muscles without putting too much strain on them.

Begin by kneeling on the ground, then slowly sit back onto your heels while stretching your arms out in front of you.

Allow yourself to relax into this position, breathing deeply and evenly.

5 – Knees to Chest

Lie on your back with your feet flat and knees bent.

Slowly draw one knee at a time towards your chest, bringing them as close together as possible in the process.

Hold for 10 seconds before releasing and repeating on the other side.
