In general when stretching the back, you should hold most stretches for 30 seconds, and do them 3 times. Sometimes you might not have enough time to go through your whole routine, which can be time consuming. If you are in a hurry, still hold the back stretches for 30 seconds, but do less reps.


Starting off with a warm up will help loosen up the back and hip muscles. Pelvic tilts are a great way to get things moving.


Lying down on the bed, floor, or couch, knee to chest and trunk rotation stretches really help loosen up and open up the back area.


Next sitting, a quadratus lumborum (QL) stretch will give great relief to the low back.


Finally, child’s pose (prayer stretch) and cat/cow (cat/dog) stretches will help the whole body relax.
