Stiff back? Here are 4 yoga poses that will help increase flexibility!

Contributor: Certified yoga instructor Patti Kopasakis, PT, DPT, SCS, RYT-200

Having a mobile lower back is key to being able to perform many activities of daily living, including emptying the dishwasher, sitting, standing and picking up things from the floor — to name a few. When we stay in prolonged positions throughout our day, we can cause the muscles in our lower back to tighten up.

Want to keep this part of your body more flexible? Try these poses, holding each pose for two to three breaths. On the one-sided poses, be sure to repeat on the other side!

Note: Poses should be entered into and moved out of slowly to protect muscles and joints. If you are having specific pain that has been ongoing for longer than two weeks or you have a specific injury, it is always best to consult a qualified health care provider, such as a physical therapist, who can develop a plan specific to your needs.
