3 Back Pain Stretches – Relieve Pain from Too Much Time on the Couch
Sick and tired of dealing with discomfort throughout your back? Here are some back pain stretches that will have you feeling like your old self again.
1. The Spinal Twist
Lay on your back on the floor, legs straight out in front of you, arms out to the sides. Gently bend your left leg and bring it toward your stomach. Twist your spine so that the bent leg goes toward the floor on your left side. Twist to the point where you feel a comfortable stretch. Hold for 20-30 seconds. Gently return your leg to the original position. Repeat with the opposite leg.
2. Child’s Pose
Kneel on the floor, making sure your inner-most toes are touching. Spread your knees while keeping your feet touching, and rest your glutes on your heels. Then, you’ll want to sit up straight momentarily, before bowing forward and resting your torso on your thighs. Bring your forehead to the floor, and stretch your arms straight forward, out in front of you. Hold the pose for a minute or two.
3. Cat-Cow Stretch
Get down on the floor on your hands and knees. Arch your back and hold for a few seconds. Then, raise your head, and bring your pelvis forward, curving your spine. Hold for 5-10 seconds. Repeat 15-20 times.
