Stretches for low back

Stretches for low back

Shortened muscles in back can impact the spine balance/alignment and lead to back pain. Do stretching exercise to lengthen shorten muscles and get rid of back pain and balance the spine.

The most established and obvious benefit of stretching is to help improve flexibility and range of motion. As the body ages, muscles can become tighter and range of motion in the joints can be minimized.

Chronically tense and tight muscles can also contribute to poor posture. Stretching helps to ensure correct posture by lengthening tight muscles that pull areas of the body away from their intended position

Before you begin your stretching, your muscles should be warm. Do a warm up of light walking, biking or jogging at a low intensity for 5 to 10 minutes. Or better yet, stretch after the workout when your muscles are already warm

Instead of trying to stretch your whole body at once, focus on a one area of the body. Spend time on each stretch and include more stretches for each area. If you are aware or facing issue on certain body parts or muscles are tighter than others, focus your attention on those as you stretch.
