Best Exercises for Lower-Back Discomfort
Try Partial Crunches
Your back will thank you for doing crunches. The half stomach crunch is a well-known exercise for strengthening the core. People with spondylosis might benefit significantly from doing partial crunches, which strengthen the lower back as well as the abdominal muscles that go along with it.
Stretching the Hamstrings
Bend one knee while lying on your back. Tie a cloth around your foot’s ball. Pull the cloth away from your knee as you straighten your leg. The rear of your leg should feel somewhat stretched. Perform this exercise 2 to 4 times for each limb.
When sitting on the sofa causes low back discomfort, consider doing some wall sitting as a diversion. These tips will help you do this wall sits correctly and safely:
Stand approximately 10 to 12 inches away from the wall with your back. Make a slight indentation in the wall with your back against it and carefully lean in.

Count to ten while holding this position, then gently slide your way back up the wall—repeat between eight and twelve times.
