If you sit at the computer all day long, or have too much stress in your life, you may experience lower back pain quite often.
Lower back pain causes include instability around the sacrum, “the large, triangular bone at the base of the spine and at the upper and back part of the pelvic cavity”. Studies show that the Cat -Cow -Child’s Yoga Poses for lower back pain exercises may help.
When your hands and knees are on the mat (shoulders are just over the wrists and hips are directly over the knees), inhale and start with the Cat Pose:
slowly arch your back with chest up and away from the belly; try to extend the tailbone toward ceiling.
Now get ready for the Cow Pose: exhale, round lower back and don’t forget to contract the belly.
Slowly go to the Child’s Pose: bring your chest down to rest on thighs.
Repetitions is the key to positive results, so try at least five-six time.
