Thanks for sharing, this article is very helpful along with the comments of the other readers. I have a lower lack injury i've been nursing for the past year and with all of the advice I have received this is the best!


Forward bends in seated postures have a greater potential for disc injuries, particularly if the indiviudal has hamstring tightness that results in posteriorly tilting the pelvis. Using the arms to force spinal flexion puts even more pressure on the disc to move posteriorly and bulge. Care must be practice with these movements!


lengthen hamstrings, spine(creating space between vertebrae, discs) , open your hips and back problem is gone forever
for back problem the basic solution is alignment of legs and pelvic so all the standing postures with props will help you


I recently had a low back problem due to the iliopsoas muscle. The more I learned about the muscle the clearer my problem. It seems that every article I read about low back pain and injury overlooks this important muscle. It is a main core muscle and a hip flexor. I have found that doing lunges regularly keeps my low back feeling great because it stretches the hip flexor muscle group. If your low back is aching LUNGE!!
