Lower back stretch with gym ball

This exercise stretches the base of the spine.

Lie on your back with your knees bent; place the partly inflated 7-inch gym ball under the bulge of your sacrum, not in the hollow of your back. You may feel your pelvis tilting back and your low back stretching; however, if you feel your neck is arching, place a cushion under your head.

If you are comfortable doing so, stretch your legs out fully, sliding then down one at a time. Make sure the ball remains under the sacrum, and your lower back remains stretched without arching up. Stay in this position with knees up or down as you wish, and relax for a minute.

When you are finished, bring your knees up one after the other and roll off the ball sideways.
