Previous Next 7 of 8 Lower back stretch

To stretch your lower back:

  • Sit forward in your chair.
  • Bring one of your knees toward your chest. Use your hands to grab the back of your thigh and gently pull it toward you. Keep your back straight, being careful not to lean forward.
  • Hold the stretch for 30 seconds. You'll feel tension in your lower back and the upper part of your buttock.
  • Relax and slowly return to the starting position.
  • Repeat the stretch with the other leg.
