Buy the Low Back Pain WorksheetLow back pain can make it difficult to perform everyday activities. Here are three of my favorite lower back pain relief stretches that can be done lying down.

Pelvic tilts, knee to chest, and trunk rotation are all simple stretches to get started. They can be done on a couch, bed, or on the floor. These should help loosen up tight back muscles and relieve pain in the low back area.
