We all know that sitting is not the best thing to do all day, and it's even worse for the low back than it is for the rest of the body. Sitting inhibits the low back stabilizing muscles, puts significant force on the low back tissues, and stops the normal flow of fluids through the region of the lower back, causing stagnation and stiffness of the low back. The simple movement below can relieve much of these problems, allowing us all to take better care of our lower backs even while sitting.
