Kneeling Lunge Stretch for Back Pain Relief by Upland Claremont Cucamonga Chiropractor

Stretching is important to loosen muscles.  The front of the hip can tighten with long periods of sitting and poor posture.

When these hip flexors tighten the lower back can become weak and painful.  Then getting out of bed, chair or your car can cause a real fear of injury.

The kneeling lung stretch starts your recovery.  Use a towel to support the lower knee provides comfort.

1. Keeping your back straight, kneel on one knee.  This will be the front hip that will be stretched.  Then place your other foot flat in front of you at 90 degrees.

2. Holding your body in good posture, slide forward.

You will feel a stretch in the front of your lower leg.  Do not push any further.  Start with holding for 30 seconds, then increase time with lower back and hip pain.

3. Switch sides and repeat.  Ice. if recommended.

This exercise can relax your back and hips to allow pain-free motion.
