These stretches are so important. Do them EVERYDAY! The more we have become "sitters" at our jobs it has really added to the increase in low back pain. Many people we see have chronically tight hip flexors, the muscles that cross the front of the hip, and that adds tension across the low back. We treat low back pain almost daily and these stretches may not completely relieve that but may lower the frequency and intensity of those flare ups. Find this helpful?? Feel free to share and comment, we love to hear from you guys! STRETCH ON!!!!!!!!
We have known for years that we can reduce stress and increase relaxation, even helping with your everyday sprain/strains and chronic muscle issues. But now there is even more research showing how we can help with so many conditions it is truly exciting. Helping with pallative care for many cancer patients, Fibromyalgia, various forms of arthritis, and headaches is really only the beginning. Our bodies are truly amazing and we have only begun to realize its ability to heal itself and how our day-to-day choices impact our health and well being. Check out some of these research links that lay it all out.
