Buy the Sore Back Stretches WorksheetSore back muscles are common when starting a new workout program or when exercising a little too hard. These back stretches can help relax a sore & tight back and provide pain relief.

A single knee to chest, double knee to chest, and supine trunk rotation stretch are great ways to get the back loosened up when the muscles are sore.

Some other great stretches for muscles in the back can be done by rolling onto the stomach. A prayer stretch or child’s pose and an upward dog or cobra stretch are great ways to stretch the back in a slightly different way.
