Today you may be in the office or traveling in a car or on a plane. Either way, this is a good exercise to put the lower back at ease. It’s a small range of motion you can do seated in any confined space.

  • Sit up tall where ever you are and pull your belly button to your spine. Make sure you have a neutral spine–that means a slight arch in your lower back.
  • Inhale to stay
  • Exhale rock your pelvis by tucking your tail bone between your legs and flattening or lengthening your lower back. It is not a large range of motion.
  • Inhale rock back to neutral.
  • Repeat this exercise for as long as you like. You can’t do it too much. Do it throughout the day or whenever you feel pressure on your back.
