Quick Tip: Is your low back sore?

Posted by on Oct 23, 2019 in Exercises

Our low backs can get sore and achy for a number of reasons — whether we’re sitting at a desk for many hours, or standing for long periods of time. Whenever we stick around in any position for too long, the low back can miss out on the the kind of movement that keeps it healthy, strong, and limber.

In this week’s Quick Tip, Jenny Lightstone and Psoas therapist Derek Lozupone demonstrate a great way to bring safe rotational movement into the low back. The Single Leg Windshield Wiper exercise activates the core, stretches the side body, and makes for an awesome break from your desk. It’s also a great warm-up or cool-down for those of you practicing squats, dead lifts, and overhead presses. So check it out, fold it into your routine, and let us know how it feels!
