If you’re looking for ways to reduce lower back pain, this simple groin stretch can keep your lower back from getting tight. Whether you sit at a desk, consistently lift heavy objects or otherwise find that your lower back is barking at you, this groin stretch can help significantly.

To start, lie down on a firm yet comfortable surface, such as the floor or a yoga mat.

To start, bend your right knee so your right foot is flat on the ground.

Without lifting your head off the floor, raise your left knee and clasp it between your hands. Gently pull your knee up and toward your abdomen. If you aren’t feel much of a stretch, you can slowly straighten your right leg until it rests completely on the floor.

Breathe deeply and count slowly to 30. Release your leg.

Switch sides and repeat.
