Diagonal standing spinal stretches are prescribed for stretching the oblique and side muscles of the lower back and abdomen, breaking down possible adhesions around the spinal nerve roots, creating space and freeing up the sciatic nerve. This exercise is most effective when performed as a part of a spinal rehab program. Gets a bit technical and needs a qualified supervision when performed first time.
