I’ve been really focusing on stretching and lengthening my psoas muscles recently. These muscles are sometimes called hip flexors and are responsible for my lower back pain.

I think it will take a few weeks before I see any major improvement but I’m trying to increase the amount I stretch each day.

This is my favourite stretch! Even if you don’t have trouble with your lower back, this is a really important stretch to do daily. Especially if you spend a lot of time seated.
