With lower back pain there is always the inclination to want to stretch the spot where it hurts.

It just so happens that whilst you might get a warm feeling under your singlet for a few hours it's not much more benefit that warming it up under the shower for 20 minutes.

Lower back pain is rarely caused by tight muscles at the spot where it's hurting. Any muscle tightness in the lower back region is caused by muscles further down your body pulling your pelvis out of alignment. When that happens the bones of the vertebrae above the pelvis are drawn out of alignment in sympathy. Muscles, tendons and ligaments are stretched beyond their pain threshold.

What you have to do if you want lasting relief is to loosen off the muscles that are drawing your pelvis out of alignment, your hamstring and buttock muscles.

What I've got for you in the Fix Back Pain ebook on the website is a series of exercises designed to settle the back muscles down. That will definitely give you some palliative relief.

However to fix the problem you're going to have to spend time doing exercises for lower back pain each evening on the floor while watching TV - not only doing the relaxing exercises but doing the gentle exercises which gradually loosen off tight hamstring and buttock muscles.

It doesn't happen over night. Rather it happens fractions of a millimetre at a time, day in, day out over a period of a couple of months.

In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and remember, the exercises for lower back pain are exercises that loosen off your hamstring and buttock muscles.
