5 At-Home Stretches Recommended By Little Rock and Benton Chiropractors

During chiropractic treatment, the chiropractors at Pain Care Associates in Little Rock will advise you on stretching exercises to continue managing your pain relief. Stretching is a great way to keep muscles and joints relaxed, mobile, and feeling well. It's also simple, typically requiring no special equipment or aids and can be done almost anywhere, anytime. If you're seeing a chiropractor for pain issues, like back pain, it's important to maintain therapeutic stretching techniques at home.

Here are five common and popular stretching techniques advised by chiropractors to practice at home. Remember-before starting a stretching routine for pain, it's important to discuss with your local chiropractor to ensure proper technique and use:

Cat Pose: Neck, Back torso
Get on your knees with your hands on the ground in front you, parallel to your shoulders. Move your head down and your spine up at the same time until you resemble a cat stretching its back.

Cow Pose: Neck, Front torso
Opposite of the cat pose, this stretch involves raising your head up and spine down at the same time until your back is arched.
Cobra Pose: Thorax, Lung, Abdomen, Shoulder

Lay flat on your stomach and lift your upper back up by pushing against the floor until your arms are stretched out all the way.

Upward-Facing Hip Twist: Hips, Thighs
In this pose, you'll lay flat on your back and lift your right knee to your chest. Then you'll twist your knee over to your left side. Repeat with the opposite knee.

Spinal Twist: Spine, Abdomen
Sit up with your legs lying straight in front of you. Take your right foot and place it on the outside of your left thigh. Twist the left side of your body towards your right. Repeat with the opposite foot.

If done incorrectly, stretching may not be as effective-in fact, poor techniques or incorrect stretches can hinder improvement. Chiropractors are trained professionals and attempting to perform therapy on yourself without their supervision can be harmful. However, at-home stretching methods can help your chiropractic therapy prove to be more effective.

If you're struggling with spine and back issues, it's important to see a chiropractor regularly. Their expertise can help you live a pain-free life. Book a chiropractic appointment with Pain Care Associates in Little Rock, AR today!
