Why you shouldn’t stretch your lower back? When your lower back is flexed, eg rounded, slumped, as seen in the picture to the right, you’re already stretching out some muscles and ligaments, in addition to pushing your disc out the back. This is a dangerous position to be in. This is why further stretching is a bad idea. Please STOP DOING IT.
