Because I wasn’t diligent about doing the stretches I should be doing, my psoas muscle tightened up on me causing serious back pain. Specifically, when this happens, my L5 shifts and sometimes gets so bad it twists my pelvic bone. Basically the entire left side of my body gets all jacked up and I can barely walk.

BACK PAIN 101

A lot of people get lower back pain, sciatica, and/or hip pain and chalk it up to age. This isn’t always the case and you don’t necessarily need back surgery. When your back muscle tightens up or becomes shortened (so-to-speak) it affects the bone it is connected to and pulls everything out of whack. This can have a ginormous impact on mobility.

RELIEF FOR BACK PAIN

These four stretches get the muscle activated again and can relieve back pain immediately. They are super simple and low impact. I could have avoided my back pain, I knew better. I am beating myself up today for being an idiot lol. …..no gym today, stretching at home, and I will try again tomorrow! 🤦🏼‍♀️😩

From a kneeling position, step forward with one leg. Keeping the bent leg at a 90-agree angle, push your hips forward. You should be feeling it in front of the hip flexor. Hold this stretch for 20-30 seconds.
