If you do yoga you will be very familiar with this pose.  The child’s pose gives a great stretch for anyone who suffers from lower back pain and/or discomfort.

If you have knee problems this stretch might not be for you, talk to your therapist and they will be able to show you an alternative.

  1. Start in a kneeling position
  2. Bring your butt towards your heels
  3. Then bring the upper body down with arms extended
  4. Place your arms and forehead on the ground
  5. Hold for 30 seconds, relax and repeat
