Weather you pick up  something the wrong way, overtrain, sleep funny, or just tweak it, Low Back Pain can be hard to shake. With just a few simple stretches, you can minimize your pain in no time. Movements that we do on a daily basis without even thinking include flexing, extending and rotating the waist, using many muscle groups. Before you head out the door for your next run or busy schedule, give your back a little TLC with these 2 effective stretches.

• Stand with your feet and body straight ahead facing a chair or stool about 12 inches high.
