Back pain is very common, with around one in three of us getting it every year. It’s usually the lower back that’s affected. Lower back pain doesn’t normally have a serious cause and in most cases the pain will improve within four to six weeks. However, for some back pain can continue for many months or even years. In most cases you can manage lower back yourself by keeping mobile and perhaps taking over-the-counter painkillers. See our self-help section below for more information. Back pain usually gets better on its own, but please see our symptoms section below for advice on when to contact your GP.
First, lay flat on the floor or mat, one leg extended and the next bent. Loop the band or towel around the ball of the extended foot. Holding each side of the band or towel, gently pull towards the chest. Feel the stretch in the calf muscle? Now hold for 30 seconds on each leg for 3 sets. With arthritis, the hips, knees and even hamstrings are problematic. A kneeling lunge loosens up the hamstring and opens the hips. Use proper form to avoid injury. This is especially helpfull in loosening up the lower back. To start, kneel on a comfortable mat on the floor. Step the right foot forward with the knee bent, similar to performing a lunge. Make sure the knee is at a 90-degree angle. Press both hands into the right thigh, shifting the upper body forward. The stretch stimulates the hips and hamstring. Hold the position for 30 seconds and then change legs. Three times per leg is enough to get the hips, knees, and hamstring ready to go.
