My Favorite Yoga Pose To Help With Back Pain – Sharing Is Caring

I often suffer from back pain and usually what helps me the most is yoga and stretching. I am going to post more exercises soon, but here’s the one stretch that always helps me no matter whether the pain is in my upper or lower back.

For the two knee twist, perform the same stretch but with both legs bent at a 90-degree angle. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Thank you for sharing that with us. I have suffered from lower back pain so asked one of my physcial therapists what can do. I do the warm-up that runners do by stretching on a bench, but, I do it on my bed and something else and that helps me out.

  2. I started using some of the stretches you shared 10 years ago. My back only hurts occasionally now (it used to hurt almost every day). Love these!
