According to the Medical Journal of Australia, up to eighty per cent of Australians will experience back pain at some point in their lives and 10 per cent will experience significant disability as a result, Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The process involves doing a couple of side to side lunges, clasping hands behind back and bending forward, with bent knees, bringing hands overhead to rinse out shoulders.

Sarah Berry, also suggests a quick, easy and effective method of placing your hands against the door, stretching out calves and then bringing your back at a right angle to your legs, and stretching it out.
