General back pain can be helped with stretches, exercises, and other treatments. These back exercises & stretches are easy to do, and should help provide back pain relief. To help relieve back pain, pelvic tilts, bridges, and supine trunk rotation will help loosen up the muscles while strengthening them as well. Another great way to help relieve back pain is using a TENS unit. The folks at Auvon sent their Dual Channel TENS unit to use. The best part of using a TENS is you can do your stretches and exercises while it’s on. For more strengthening, you can add onto the bridges by doing a bridge with a ball squeeze to help activate the adductor muscles, and then doing a bridge with a resistive band to help activate the abductor muscles. Finally, stretching the quadratus lumborum (QL) in tall kneeling is a great way to relieve back pain.
