The best part about relieving lower back pain is that it does not have to take long. You can complete these 5 stretches in just 5 minutes and get on with your day. Your back will feel better and you will be able to go on with your day.

1.Hamstring floor stretch

For this exercise lay flat on your back on the floor. Pull one leg up straight to stretch out the hamstring. Hold for 30 seconds and then repeat with the other leg.

2.Knee to chest

While lying flat on your back on the floor bring your knee to your chest and hold for 30 seconds. Repeat the exercise with the other leg.

3.Spinal stretch

While lying on your back, cross one leg over the other and hold. Keep your back straight on the floor while crossing your leg over. Hold the position for 30 seconds and then repeat on the other side.

4.Piriformis stretch

Lie on your back and bring up one leg to a 90 degree angle. Bring the other leg up and cross it over your raised leg. Hold this position for 30 seconds and then switch legs. The easiest way to think about this stretch is like you are sitting in a chair with your legs crossed, only lying on your back on the floor.

5.Quadriceps Stretch

Lie down on the floor on one side and pull your top leg up towards your back. Hold the position for 30 seconds and then turn over and do the same stretch on your other side.
