Hey everybody it’s Dr. Zach Beatty with Gonstead Family Chiropractic out here in sunny San Diego. Just wanted to touch base with you guys today to go over how to help correct and fix low back pain. I have a really cool stretch to share with you guys. If you get lost during this article, good news, we have a video with instructions below. Feel free to watch it and also subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more helpful tips and videos.
I think it’s going to really help a lot of you so let’s go over that stretch. What we’re going to do is have you sit cross legged like we used to when we were in school. The next thing you’re going to do is either have somebody push on your back gently. Or you can take a towel and wrap it around a bedpost so you can pull yourself forward.
You’re going to have your legs bent cross-legged and you’re going to go forward. What this is going to do is help stretch the area. It’s going to pull through the IT bands and the glutes. It’s also going to help the hip flexors and things like that. So you’re going to do this position and pull yourself forward. Then you’re going to breathe, then go further into it and pull further or have somebody push down. This stretch alone will really help the hips, the low back, and everything like that be more mobile. If you guys have any questions on how to do this feel free. Here is a link below that will take you to the blog about low back pain.
If you guys have any questions again feel free to reach out to us. We are centrally located in Kearny Mesa, San Diego, just off the 52 highway and Convoy Street by Pacific Honda, Zion Market, and the Union Bank (Clairemont Mesa Blvd).
