I‘ll get Andrea to demonstrate.
#1 – Lie down on your Stomach
Lie down on your Stomach
When you are lying on your stomach, you are in a low stress position so it allows the muscles on your back to loosen up. It decreases the pressure on your back. For probably 95% of people, lying on the stomach and being in a little bit of extension in the back helps. Now you can just lie down in this position for like 30 seconds to 2 minutes and see how your back feels.
#2 – Lie down on your Forearms
Lie down on your Forearms
You will slowly move up on your forearms and be on a little bit of extension in the low back. Hold it for 10 to 15 seconds. Go back down on your stomach and then do another repetition. So see what works best for you, 5-second hold, 10-second hold or 15-second hold.
#3 – Press Up
Your hands are just underneath the shoulders. You will push up, arch at the back, arch at the upper body, arms are straight and then come back down. We are really trying to focus on arching the back and the rest of the body. You can straighten your arms out and back down if you are able to. But if you can only get half width, that’s perfectly fine. Go through 5 repetitions in a smooth controlled movement and hold the end position for a second. You can progress to 2 seconds and then back down. Start off with 5 repetitions then you can progress to 10 repetitions.
Give those three exercises a go to provide back pain relief!
