Step 3: If your low back hurts or your lower ribs are flaring and lifting the hips and resettling the spine (as described in Step 2) didn't help, then you need to lift your hips up again and place a folded blanket under your hips/sacrum area. Keep your knees bent if you are using a blanket. Notice if this has lessened your discomfort and/or your flaring ribs. If not, stay tuned for Step 4.
