Back Exercises: Pelvic Tilt

Woman lying on back with knees bent. Arrow shows pelvis flexing spine.

To start, lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Don’t press your neck or lower back to the floor. Breathe deeply. You should feel comfortable and relaxed in this position:

  • Tighten your stomach and buttocks, and press your lower back toward the floor. This should be a small, subtle movement. This should not increase your pain.

  • Hold for 5 to 15 seconds. Release.

  • Repeat 2 to 5 times.
