Wellness Wednesday – Figure 4 Stretch

This week we would like to share a new stretch to decrease hip and lower back pain. This stretch is to stretch the muscle that attaches at your sacrum to your hip bone, performing rotation at the hip. Figure 4 stretch

  • Lay on back with knees bent~ cross one ankle to opposite knee
  • Allow both hips to soften and relax
  • Repeat on opposite hip
  • If you need more thread arms through under support knee bringing it toward your chest

Let us know if you need further advice in performing this stretch. If you feel this is not targeting your source of pain, give us a call to learn more about how we can help you get back to shining in your day to day again.
