A wonky SIJ is a "yoga problem" and also can crop up postpartum. Try this sequence to stabilize, stretch, and strengthen the tissues supporting this vital joint.
Back pain can make even everyday tasks burdensome and painful. Things like bending over to feed your pet or lifting a gallon of milk become difficult if your back is bothering you. Fortunately, lower back braces can help. Lower back braces provide support by compressing the lower back and abdominal area, which can decrease pressure and strain. These types of braces often help with herniated disks, sciatica, or general low back pain. When searching for a lower back brace, look for features such as removable or adjustable lumbar support and breathable materials so you stay comfortable. Choose a size that gives you the proper fit, too. Here are our favorite lower back braces. We hope one works for you!
