Good afternoon - I was directed to your forum for an issue I’m having.
My lower back muscles have all gone into spasm. Radiating from my spine outwards to my hips and buttocks. This happens less regularily now that I’ve started yoga, but I have been wary of going to class to do a full practice untill all the pinching and dull ache calms down. Is there a passive pose I can do at home that would help with the lower back pain? I have a herniated disc from when I was a teenager (12 years ago) and old muscle injuries on the top of that down my left side after taking a fall 3 years ago. Pain mainly presents more on the left side even though during my practice I am generally tighter on my right side. I also find my right leg comes up a bit shorter, however I’ve been advised by physio’s that this is due to my hips being slightly misaligned.
I’ve been doing my spinal twists, knees to chest and child’s pose, but would like to do domething that I can relax into for 10 - 15 minutes. I’ve only been practicing for 5 months, and am very much a beginner.
Thanks you in advance for your time.
