“Globally, lower back pain causes more disability than any other condition, affecting nearly 1 in 10”.  [1]

From sitting at your desk for long periods of time through to incorrect techniques when strength training, many factors can lead to aches and pains in the back and in particular your lower part. Pregnant women also suffer from pain from carrying the extra weight around the belly. This can also be the same for people who are overweight.

Stretching after exercise is particularly important because tight glutes & hamstrings in particular can cause low back pain. If you are sitting down for long periods of time you will also find that your hip flexors are very tight & can even hurt. Stretching these areas out daily can help.

In general try to stand up & walk around every hour. Add standing into your daily work routine like answering a phone call and standing to speak whenever possible. The stretches below will help improve your posture, reduce back pain and prevent it from coming back. You need to be religious about doing them daily though.
