3 Stretches to relieve Low Back Pain

Over 80% of Americans have or will have low back pain at some point in our lives.  It could be a sports injury, having weak low back muscles and lifting something around the house, or because you have tight muscles and bad posture from sitting at your job all day.  Here are some great stretches that really make an impact on relieving low back pain and preventing it from happening again.  Do these at least three times a week,  2 sets of each and holding for 30 seconds.
Hamstrings: Ease into this stretch, this muscle has a tendency to be very tight!


Hip Flexors: Has a huge impact on lower back pressure.
Lats: The biggest muscle in your back has a profound effect on Low Back Pain.
