Reclaim your flexibility with this simple exercise. It is the revival of life energy for your tired achy back.
Want to know the easiest way to relieve lower back pain? Place your hands or forearms on a wall or a counter or a bench, and bend your legs. Keep your feet hip width apart and facing forward. Engage or firm the muscles on all four sides of your legs: the front, the back, the inner, and the outer. For most people, the inner thighs tend to be the weakest part of the legs. Keeping your arches lifted; press down firmly with the inner edges of your feet. This will fire up your outer shin muscles. With these muscles, you can hug your shins in toward the midline of your body, creating some powerful resistance. Against this resistance, you can move your thighs apart. This action will increase the space in your lower back and relieve some of the tightness you may feel there.
We will keep referring to this very important action, inward spiral, throughout this DVD, because it is a key concept in relieving pain in the lower back.
You can also use this action to relieve some tightness in your shoulders. Clasp your hands and place your elbows on the bench or the counter. Then lift your arm bones and hold the strength of that lift, while you soften the back of your heart with an exhalation. Now bend forward and touch the floor. Wrap your arms around your leg and squeeze your shins in, right below your knees. Squeeze your shins in firmly and push your thighs apart.
