Relieving Low Back Pain: Part 1 - Hip Openers

     There is a strong connection between the hips and low back pain. Because the lower part of your spine rests on the top of the hips, if there is an imbalance in the muscles surrounding the hips, such as tightness in a particular muscle, that imbalance can be transferred to and amplified in the lower back. Below are six stretches that target the muscles surrounding the hips to help you relieve low back pain. Warning: these poses are not intended for those suffering from structural issues (herniated discs, spinal stenosis, SI injuries, etc.) that have not yet received clearance from a doctor or a physical therapist. These poses may be helpful for some of those conditions but only after the initial healing phase and with modifications appropriate to the condition. That said, let's get stretching!
