This short yoga class teaches you how to care for your lower back. David takes you through a self-massage routine and a series of stretches that release key muscles responsible for the tightness around the hips, legs and back that are associated with lower back pain. Note: you need two tennis balls, an old sock, a strap and a bolster. Check out this video to see how to make a bolster at home.

Tennis Balls

I have two lacrosse balls that I have used for my back in the past. Would it work to use those instead of tennis balls?

Lacrosse balls

I believe lacrosse balls are a bit harder, so it would depend on how it feels.

This is my favorite practice.

This is my favorite practice. I have back pain and I usually feel good-great after doing this one. Feels especially good before or after a long walk. It is good if you don't have a lot of time to invest but want to get some stretching in.
Thank you!

Recovery from back pain
creek 1 year ago

Hi Alke, you do not mention if the recovery is due to surgery or an injury but irregardless you should always check with your doctor to see if there is any movement you should not do. I too had back pain from working while limping around on a knee painful from osteoarthritis, my chiropractor said yoga would be great.

foundational lower back maintenance

I am working to recover from a lower back/hip injury that causes stiffness and pain. Doing this class took my pain level from a 8 to a 3. Thank you David! I love starting off the class with tennis balls and ending in recovery on a bolster. FYI, I paused the video to add in a figure 4 stretch on each side.
