At-home stretching exercises are a great way to increase the flexibility and strength of your back and decrease the chances of injury.
In this video, ExpertVillage.com provides an overview on how to perform the rotator stretch for the lower back. Start by lying down on a mat with both of your knees bent and your body evenly aligned. Keeping your torso straight and your shoulders on the floor turn your knees to the left side and hold for 45 seconds to a minute. Switch sides so that your knees are then turned to the right side, and perform the exercise again.
