Stretching on a regular basis can be an effective way to improve your flexibility and reduce back pain. Here are some daily stretches that can be done by everyone:
Child's Pose: Kneel on the ground and touch your toes together, sit back on your heels and stretch your arms forward as far as you can.
Cat-Cow Stretch: Begin on your hands and knees with your wrists directly under your shoulders and your knees directly under your hips. Inhale and lift your head and tailbone towards the ceiling, then exhale and round your spine.
Downward-Facing Dog: Begin on your hands and knees, then lift your hips up and back, straightening your arms and legs.
Cobra Stretch: Lie on your stomach, place your hands under your shoulders and push up to lift your chest off the ground.
Seated Forward Fold: Sit on the ground with your legs straight out in front of you. Reach forward as far as you can while keeping your back straight.
Figure 4 Stretch: Lie on your back with your knees bent. Cross your right ankle over your left knee and gently pull your left leg towards your chest.
It's important to remember to breathe deeply and hold each stretch for at least 30 seconds. These stretches can be done every day to improve flexibility and reduce back pain. However, if you have any chronic pain or injury, it's always best to consult with a medical professional before beginning any exercise program.
