Whether you’ve been sitting in an office chair for too long or have been sleeping the wrong way, occasional back pain is inevitable.
However, a massage therapist in Kentucky has shared a simple trick to avoid pain that affects more than 130 million Americans.
James Moore posted a video on Instagram last week of himself standing in his doorway.
He holds the door frame with both hands and crosses his right leg over his left.
He bends over so far that his backside is only half a meter off the ground.
Mr Moore advises his 3.1 million followers to hold the position for 10 seconds.

Some Instagram users praised the technique.
A user named maellekervan said: ‘Good.’
Brownrebecca6337 said: ‘Looks like this is a good move.’
However, some Instagram users expressed their doubts.
‘Not everyone has the strength to raise their leg and perform the stretch in that position. However, it can also be done while sitting on a chair, for example. I like your version because you can go deeper if you can,” said a user named glen_chevannes.
