Lucy demonstrates how to stretch the lumbar spine .

Stretch 1)

Lying flat on you back bring one leg up towards the chest gripping behind the thigh. Once a stretch is felt hold for 30sec. Do NOT push though to cause any pain.

Do the same stretch on the other leg, then do both together.

Stretch 2)

Bend both legs but keep feet on the bed/floor. Move both legs to one side and hold for 30sec. Then slowly and carefully move the legs over to the over side and hold for 30sec.

Complete these stretches 2-3 times per day. Complete 5 sets of 30sec stretches.
