Easy Stretches to help you with Lower Back Pain

Excess stress, hectic routine, and feeling overworked might lead to backpain, which if not treated could become chronic. Back pain, however could develop without any specific physical cause, as it can be emotional or diet-related. When it is physical, it can be tied to: 路 Ligament or muscle strain 路 Arthritis 路 Skeletal irregularities 路 Osteoporosis Regular stretching could help you protect your back by improving flexibility and reducing the injury altogether.

Here arethree stretches to reduce back pain


Knee-to-chest stretch First, lie on your back on the floor extending your legs. Then, lift and bend your right leg, bringing your knee closer to your chest. Now, you should grasp your knee or skin with the help of your right hand, and pull your legs as much as you can without strain. Now, you should stay in the knee-to-chest position while tightening your abdominal muscles and then pressing your spine into the floor. You should now hold for around 6 seconds. Now, you return to your starting position. As it is done, you should now do the exercise using your left leg then do it using your both legs at the same time.

Standing back arch To start, stand up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Now, place the palms of your hands on your lower back. Take a few deep and slow breaths. To keep going on with this, you can now bend your upper body backwards, keeping your knees straight. You can support your back using your hands and then hold for around 5-6 seconds. Now, you can slowly return to your starting position; and then repeat it 5 times.

Cat/cow stretch Start on your hands and knees on the floor, using your hands under your shoulders and knees under your hips. You should be in a state that your spine is in parallel to the ground in this position. Then, start rounding your back, slowly but gradually and most importantly comfortably stretching your mid-back between your shoulder blades – just like how a cat stretches by rounding its back. Now, you can hold for a total of around 5 seconds, relax and then let your stomach fall downward as you simplistically arch your low back and hold in that state for around 5


seconds. You can repeat the movement for 30 seconds or longer. Other than the stretches, expert help is required in order to holistically prepare for comfortable return to your normal state of health.
