Got lower back pain? This resistance stretching video will help

Feeling stiff from exercise or want to improve your posture? Week two of our Resistance Stretching series with exercise therapist Lucia Farina from London fitness studio FRAME focuses on glutes and posterior hip muscles to ease lower back pain

Learning how to stretch properly is important to reduce your risk of injury, quicken muscle recovery, improve flexibility and posture. This week you will be learning how to stretch your glutes using Resistance Stretching techniques, which work on your body’s fascia, the bands and sheets of connective tissue that hold your muscles together. It’s basically stretching muscles while also contracting them.

This can be done in your gym or at home and you only need a small rolling ball, preferably a lacrosse ball or you can use a slightly softer ball such as a tennis ball.

The glutes and posterior hip muscles are often the ones that cause most issues with movement in this area.

To lengthen these muscles your pelvis and hips need to be positioned in a correct and sturdy form to pull them longer. These exercises may give long lasting results and not just a temporary release.

In order to develop your posture, we must respect the skeletal structure of the body by teaching the muscles to move around the bones, this way they can move more freely and reduce your risk of injury.

Releasing glutes and posterior hip muscles plays a big part in easing up lower back pain, lengthening these muscles properly is worth it and overall keeps our bodies happier.
