Looking for an easy way to help stretch out your sore or painful back while increasing range of motion? Try a standing trunk extension.

To perform a standing trunk extension:

  1. Stand straight up with your feet about shoulder width apart. Place your hands on the lower portion of your back.

  2. Lean backwards, arching your back until you feel a stretch.
