Let’s face it: even if you don’t have back pain right now, you probably have had it at some point—and you’ll probably have it again. To keep your back healthy, you should try to keep it strong, mobile, and flexible.
Going through these easy stretches will help you do just that. Consider incorporating them into your normal exercise routine or making them something you do when you first get up every day. Seeing your chiropractor on a maintenance basis is preventative in avoiding exacerbations or aggravations of a new or chronic condition.
Dr. Kaster recommends stretching for increased muscle control, flexibility and range of motion.
Stretching can be dangerous when performed incorrectly. Dr. Kaster has provided demonstration videos to promote proper stretching techniques.
