Dr. Michael Horowitz's Stretch of the Day Series
Stretch of the Day:
- The Pelvis-Tilt Stretch! (A) Lying down on the ground, knees bend and feet on the floor, tilt your pelvis to your belly by contacting your abdominal and gluteus muscles and squeeze for 15-seconds. Now do the opposite, tilting your pelvis in the other direction but arching your back and creating a hollow between your spine and the ground. Squeeze for 15-seconds (B) This same stretch can be done while sitting or standing. I find that when I’ve been standing for a long period of time and I get that achy feeling in my low back, the tilting the pelvis to the belly by contracting my abdominal and gluteus muscles while squeezing for 15-seconds really makes a difference in how I feel. This stretch gives me immediate relief.
