A knee to chest stretch and pelvic tilts are great ways to loosen up the low back area where there might be tightness and pressure causing increased pain.

Prone props are also great to help “push” the disc back in. This should only be performed if you have a proper diagnosis and are cleared by your doctor as they might not be indicated for other back issues.
