Lumbar Rotations

Lumbar rotations gently open the lower back joints and stretch the lower back, hip and buttock muscles.
This is an exercise for your lower back mobility.
It relieves lower back stiffness and associated discomfort.
Perfect for when you first wake up, this routine can be performed lying in bed.

Proper form

- Lie flat on your back with both knees bent and a pillow supporting your head and neck (if desired)

- Your lower back should be in neutral position (i.e. your lower back curve should be positioned comfortably midway between extended and flexed position).

- Keep at least one foot in contact with the mattress as you gently lower both knees to one side of the body. Return to your starting position and repeat to the other side.

- Repeat lumbar rotations 2-3 times each side
