4 Stretches for Low Back Pain
Updated: Jun 22, 2021
Do you suffer from low back pain?
Low back pain is one of the most common conditions affecting Americans. It can lead to debilitating pain, reduced movement, and increased work absence. What can you do for your low back pain?
Evidence points towards spinal manipulation or chiropractic care for relief in many cases. In addition to spinal manipulation, countless modalities can be used in conjunction. One of the best ways to help reduce low back pain, and support spinal manipulation, is stretching.
Spinal manipulation will help align the body, reduce pain, restore function, and increase range of motion. Stretching keeps the muscles in the low back and hips relaxed allowing for proper spinal alignment and movement. If a muscle is not stretched or released, it will remain tight and restrict normal movement which can alter biomechanics and cause pain.
