Lumbar Spine Mobilization – Peanut

HOW: Place a peanut (or two tennis balls taped together) on the ground at the bottom of your lumbar spine with the gap of the peanut directly over the middle of the spine. Gently lay onto it and use both hands to adjust your body weight on the peanut. Work your way up your lumbar spine moving an inch up at a time.  FEEL: You should feel a massage like pressure over your lumbar spine.  COMPENSATION: Stay centered over the peanut, don’t allow it to move off of your lumbar spine, perform slowly and with control
