Most of us have been told that we need to stretch before and after doing any doing any kind of exercise or activity. But how can stretching help back pain exactly?
Here our London chiropractor explains…
Most of us can benefit from stretching the muscles, ligaments and tendons in the back, legs, buttock, and around the spine. This is because everything within the spinal column was designed to move, and limitations in this motion can worsen, or even cause, back pain.
If you have chronic or ongoing back pain, you may find it takes weeks or even months of stretching to mobilise the spine and soft tissues. But stick at it; because you are likely to find sustained back pain relief and an increase in motion.
Ask your chiropractor for suitable and manageable stretching exercises for your condition.
You can get your spine back to good health.
