Hip Stretch to Relieve Back Pain Video

Video Transcript

Hello, everyone. I'm Natalie. And today, Veritas Health is bringing you the one stretch doctors perform to relieve their back pain.

To do this stretch, you will kneel on the ground, one foot flat on the ground. You will have your weight evenly distributed through both legs and put your hands on your thigh. Shift your weight forward until you feel a stretch through the front of your hip. You can hold the stretch for 30 seconds working up to three times on each side. If it is uncomfortable for you to kneel, you can modify this stretch by standing with your feet wide apart, hands on your hips or on the wall for balance, and shifting your weight forward until you feel a gentle stretch to the front of your hip. If you have any pain or discomfort with this stretch, please discontinue and talk to your medical provider.

Low back pain can have a negative impact on your overall quality of health. We want to empower you to take care of your health and feel better. You can learn more about back pain here at Spine-health. And please subscribe to our channel for more videos like this. Thank you for watching.
