5 Exercises to Relieve Lower Back Pain

If you’re struggling with lower back pain, incorporating targeted exercises into your routine can make a significant difference. Here are five effective exercises recommended by our expert physiotherapists:

  • Pelvic Tilts: Lie on your back with knees bent. Gently tilt your pelvis upwards, flattening your lower back against the floor. Hold for a few seconds and release.
  • Cat-Cow Stretch: Begin on all fours. Arch your back upwards (cat) and then dip it downwards (cow) in a fluid motion. Repeat several times.
  • Hamstring Stretch: While lying on your back, extend one leg and gently lift it towards you. Hold for 15-30 seconds and switch legs.
  • Hip Flexor Stretch: Kneel on one knee and lunge forward, keeping your back straight. You should feel a gentle stretch in the front of your hip.
  • Partial Crunches: Lie on your back with knees bent. Cross your arms over your chest and raise your shoulders off the ground, exhaling as you lift.

Remember to perform these exercises slowly and smoothly, without straining. If you experience increased pain, stop immediately. Consult with our physiotherapists for personalized guidance and support on your journey to a pain-free back.
