Those of us with low back pain know that we try almost everything to relieve it. Fortunately, thanks to TikTok, there is a wealth of chiropractor tips in the palm of our hands. Today’s tip comes from chiropractor Brian Meenan, DC, of the Pittsburgh Premier Chiropractic Clinic. In his viral TikTok, he instructs viewers to grab a door handle, take a deep squat, lean back slightly, and push on their thighs to twist (make sure to get the other side).
I tried this for myself and it gave me a good morning stretch that definitely came to my lower back in the best way. The stretch also reminded me of the Malasana squat yoga pose with a twist. Here’s a tip from me to you: If the deep squat feels a little too deep, try sitting on a yoga block for more support under your seat. Thanks to Dr. Meenan it’s time to relieve our low back pain by twisting again like we did last summer!
