Pelvic Tilts

Topic Overview

This exercise gently moves the spine, hips, and pelvis, which stretches the lower back.

  • Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor.
  • Slowly tighten your stomach muscles and press your lower back against the floor. Hold the position (not your breath) for 10 seconds. Slowly relax. Repeat several times.

Exercising regularly keeps your muscles and joints flexible.
