According to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), back pain is the second most common reason for doctors’ visits. If you or your loved one are experiencing uncomfortable back pain, these stretches should help ease your discomfort.
- Neck and Chest Stretch
While seated with your feet firmly planted on the ground, bring your hands to rest at the base of your skull, your fingers interlocking with each other. Tilt your head up slightly then slowly move your head side to side, each time making sure that your elbow is almost exactly parallel with the ground. Do this for three rounds or until you feel your muscles relaxing.
- Seated Gentle Backbend
While sitting halfway on the chair with your legs forming a 90-degree angle to the ground, place your hands on your lower back. Press your fingers firmly into your hip and as you exhale, gently arch your spine, leading with your head. Hold the pose for about 5 breaths before letting go and coming back to your initial position. Repeat this exercise 3 to 5 times or until you feel your back muscles begin to relax.
