1. Child’s Pose
Doingthe child pose is a great way to take the pressure off of your lowerback. When doing it you elongate your spine while also decompressingand aligning it. It’s a nice stretch and it feels good. Start outon all fours with your knees hip-width apart and lay your torso downon your thighs. Put your hands up in front of you and try to stretchforward, as if to elongate your whole spine and neck. It’s best torelax into it and stay in the pose for at least a minute or two.
