I am glad this works for you. However, if back pain is caused by spinal problems such as herniated or bulging discs, stenosis, bone spurs or other degenerative problems this type of movement could increase pain and even possibly cause more damage. I have very serious spinal problems and could not even do this movement.
Not every treatment, exercise or solution is for every patient. It is vital to discuss everything with your doctor to ensure you will not make your condition worse.
Thanks for your Reply!

Cheers
