80% of Americans experience back pain at least once in their lives. Studies have shown that stretching and exercising have helped to reduce pain and prevent injury. Here are some stretches you can try:
- Rotational stretch: Rotational spine stretches are gentle spinal twists that help to release tension in your back.
- Shoulder blade squeeze: Shoulder blade squeezes help to strengthen muscles in your upper back. They also help to improve your posture.
- Bridge exercises: Bridge exercises help to strengthen back and hamstring muscles which help to support your spine.
