Do you struggle with back pain?
You are not alone.
Back pain is a very common issue that affects people of all ages, and it can be incredibly debilitating. If this is an issue for you, then one way to help relieve the stress on your back is by stretching out the muscles in your lower back.
In this blog post, we will discuss a quick and efficient low back stretching routine that you can do at home or during breaks at work to help keep your body healthy!
Step One: Start by standing up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Then, place your hands on the top of each hip bone and pull yourself upright as you exhale deeply through both nostrils for about five seconds to release tension in the back muscles.
The second step is to bend forward at the hips while maintaining an upright spine (avoid rounding it) until you feel a stretch along the front side of your body without any pain or discomfort. Hold this position for 15 seconds before returning back to starting position – don’t forget to raise your arms above your head!
You can also take this time during stretches that are not painful to do breathing exercises like inhaling through the nose and out mouth slowly over ten counts.
