WHY: This exercise will help you to learn low back and pelvic body awareness. Learning body awareness in these regions is important when trying to manage low back pain now and in the future. This exercise also promotes motion in this region and can help with low back stiffness and spasms.
HOW: Get set-up seated on a surface with both feet supported on the ground. Place your hands on your hip bones to help with learning body awareness. Now perform posterior pelvic tilt followed by anterior pelvic tilt.
FEEL: To perform posterior pelvic tilt, think about drawing in your belly button and tucking your butt in. Follow this by performing anterior pelvic tilt, think about gently arching your low back and sticking your butt out. Follow the video for other cues and tips.
