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