If you have lower back pain and you spend a lot of time sitting, there is a good chance that the back pain is coming from:
- tight hip flexors
- weak abdominal muscles
- weak pelvic floor
- overstretched lower back
- weak glutes (butt muscles)
A common misconception when you feel pain in your lower back is that you need to stretch it… but (if you are sitting most of the day) there is a good chance that your lower back is overstretched!
So, what can you do?
Get your hips moving in isolation. This will get your glutes, pelvic floor and lower abdominals activated while releasing and relaxing the hip flexors and lower back.
This is something we regularly do in Pilates class.
