Buy achy back worksheetAn achy back can make it painful to do daily activities. Some simple back stretches like these may help relieve the back pain and ache.

Starting off with a posterior pelvic tilt and a bridge can not only help stretch the back muscles, but they can also help strengthen them as well.

Next, a knee to chest stretch should help relax the muscles in the back and hips.

The last two achy back stretches are in a quadruped or all fours position. The cat/dog or cat/cow and the prayer stretch or child’s pose are great ways to help get the whole back and pelvis area moving and loosened up.
