Yoga exercises are great for relieving low back pain and overall health. The primary goal of back pain relief exercises is to elongate the spinal and balance the muscles of the body in order to provide support and protection to the spine and discs.

These exercises are great yoga exercises for back pain relief. Now please do each exercise slowly and carefully and make sure you check with your Doctor and Chiropractor to make sure these exercises are ok and safe for you to do. And of course you should work with a trained instructor.

Here are the three exercises:

1.  Sun Salutation:  stand in an upright position and hold your hands in a prayer position in front of your chest.  Inhale deeply and slowly raise your arms over your head. If this feels good that’s great. You can stop here or you can continue and slowly bend forward. It is not necessary to touch the floor all you have to do is stretch forward to a nice comfortable stretch. You do not want to feel any pain at all.

2.  The Corpse: lie flat on your back in a relaxed position, place your arms at your sides, with your palms down, and keep your legs flat down in a relaxed position and have your knees out turned slightly. Now just breathe deeply and let the stress and strain float out of your body.

3.  The Cat Pose: the starting position is to be on your  knees and hands  and keep your back flat. Keep your hands directly under your shoulders and keep your knees directly under your hips. Now relax and loosely face the floor and take several deep breathes. Inhale deeply and and then as you exhale arch your back and tuck your chin into your chest and tuck your tailbone. Keep this posture for 5 to 10 seconds or more if it feels good and then return to the starting position.

Please always see your Chiropractor, Doctor or Physical Therapist before starting any exercise program.
