Stretching regularly, especially the back and spine, is critical to maintain painless motion. Especially if people are going to be following doctors’ recommendations and exercising. When one stretches before exercise, they lower tension in the muscles. This tension can exacerbate muscular pain if left without treatment. Stretching also increases general mobility and a basic range of motion. And by stretching, one is reducing their chances of serious injury that could impact their general activity or even leave one crippled.
- Stretching is good for stress, but better for relieving muscular tension that can cause pain.
- Focusing on one’s breathing, while paying attention to good posture, can oxygenate and relax one’s body.
- Whatever stretches one does, studying and practicing proper posture is important to get the best results.
“Many studies have shown that regular core bracing and strengthening the back muscles, promotes long-term relief from lower back pain. Living a sedentary life has been shown to increase the risk of back pain, hence the need to do some of these exercises.”
