Desk Stretches for Relieving Lower Back Pain at the Office


Desk Stretches - Forward Bending

Lower back muscles get very stiff even in the best of office chairs. Forward bending is the most fundamental method of stretching and lengthening them.

I recommend using active isolated stretching over static stretching, especially in cases where muscles are extremely stiff and tight.

Active isolated stretching is more effective because it does not provoke the protective stretch reflex.
