What are good stretching exercises for lower back?
I’m not a runner so I’m not sure what exact motions may have caused the pain. A few things I can suggest… one exercise: stand with your back against a wall with feet shoulder length apart, pointing forward, about a foot away from the wall. Start with your arms raised straight over your head (but keep shoulders down and relaxed). Beginning with your head, slowly “roll” your back down and forward, imagine stretching one vertebrae at a time. Continue to do this until you have rolled through your lower back. Slowly return to your starting position by “restacking” your vertebrae. Remember though, if it hurts stop. You don’t want to make an injury worse than it may already be. Any Pilates exercises would also probably be helpful. Pilates is a system of exercises that concentrate on strengthening your core and alignment. There are websites that can show you more about those. But, it is best to have an experienced instructor show you. If the pain continues, don’t hesitate to see a doctor. He
