Your back deals with a lot from day-to-day activities. From playing sports, construction work, home improvement, or working at the office, several things can strain your back. A chiropractic visit is an excellent start at alleviating the pain and pressure, but it’s not a cure-all, especially if you can’t get to the office. Is there something you can do at home? Yes, there is! These five exercises can be done in the comfort of your own home to help relieve lower right and left back pain and the spine.
Before you start:
You know your body better than anyone. If you feel any discomfort or pain as you perform these exercises, stop doing them. You could be causing even more stress on your back without realizing it if you continue. If you have any questions about these exercises or your current treatment, don’t hesitate to contact us at Gilroy Chiropractic or your general practitioner for more advice.
One last note: Don’t forget to breathe throughout your exercises. It’s very easy to hold your breath because it’s uncomfortable or you’re concentrating on the movements. Keep breathing!
