Muscles to stretch

There are 4 key muscles to stretch:


Recite Femoris



For now I would like to focus on the Psoas muscle. It starts from each of the 5 lumbar vertebrae and ends at the top and inside of your leg. One of its jobs is to left your leg/knee when standing. When this muscle becomes tight it can cause your lumbar spine to curve excessively.

Stretching the Psoas

To stretch any muscle you need to pull the start of the muscle away from the end. Please watch the video above to find out more about how to stretch this muscle correctly.

Other key areas of you lumbar lordosis treatment session

Massage and other forms of manipulation is a great way to start your session. Now your muscles have been passively manipulated they are ready for stretching.

Stretching will further lengthen your tight muscle. They will remain stretched for up to 20 minutes before the stretch reduces. In this time you want to take advantage extra muscle length and flatten your excessive lordotic curve using specific exercises.

This final stage allows your body learns a new position for your spine.
