Yoga Postures for Low Back Pain
1. Downward Facing Dog
Why it works: This is yoga’s most ubiquitous pose and it’s most useful. The entire spine is stretched and decompressed in this position. It also lengthens the hamstrings and promotes blood circulation.
2. Cat/Cow Pose
Why it works: This pose is simple yet effective for bringing flexibility into the spine and for stretching the back, hips, and abdomen. It’s great for relieving lower back pain and sciatica.
3. Childs Pose or Supported Childs Pose
Why it works: It helps align the spine and takes pressure off the lower back.
4. Reclined Pigeon Pose
Why it works: This pose is a virtual medicine cabinet of relief. It stretches the spine, hips, and inner thighs (tightness in these areas can cause low back pain). It’s also great for relieving sciatic pain.
5. Legs Up the Wall Pose
Why it works: It gently stretches the hamstrings and lower back. Place a folded blanket or other support under the lower back, extend the legs up the wall allowing the soles of the feet to face the ceiling, and let the sacrum drop toward the floor.
