Lower back problems are one of the issues that have been plaguing modern-day people. This is because many different muscles can actually trigger pain in the lower back. What’s more most people are not usually aware of where the pain is coming from. As such, targeting the necessary areas becomes harder and the muscles that are causing the pain to fail to be released in the long run.
When it comes to lower back pain, one of the keys to feeling relief actually lies in the Glute and hamstring stretches. These specific muscles, that is the Glute and hamstring can actually have detrimental effects on someone’s lower back as one of their predominant functions relates to them giving people the ability to bend forward or stretch to reach for something. As such, in many ways, they are also connected to the lower back instead of just to the legs. The benefits of doing glute and hamstring stretches extend far beyond the basics of increasing flexibility, which is what many believe. In fact, these exercises can create allow people to have better sitting postures and even release any pain they feel in their legs and nerves. They are also great for lower back, knee, and hip pain relief.
Outside of general glue exercises, you might also want to focus on exercises that focus on the Gluteus Medius. The Gluteus Medius is a thick hip abductor muscle, that can cause pain in both the lower back all the way to the tail bone, as well as in the outer glute area. A good Gluteus Mediusstretch can be the trick to releasing any tightness in your lower back and releasing the pain that you might have felt when walking, running, lifting, sitting, or even sleeping.
If you want to improve the pain relief felt through these stretches and exercises you can also start utilizing the right kind of tools that allow for deeper muscles to be massaged and relaxed. These tools can include a Lacrosse ball massage or a Back cracker device, like a back cracker board allowing you to go more deeply in these exercises. With the use of the right tools and proper stretches, you will very quickly release the tension in your glutes and experience less pain in your lower back.
