Spine Healthy Backyard Activities

Now’s the time to get outside and enjoy the beautiful warm weather. Here are some spine-friendly backyard activities that can help to strengthen your spine and improve your flexibility:

  • Swimming: If you have a pool, swimming is a great way to get some exercise and have fun. Swimming is great for your spine because the water helps to relieve the pressure on your spine and joints. Swimming can help to strengthen your back muscles. 
  • Backyard Stretching: Stretching in your backyard is a good way to get outside to get some fresh air and relax your back muscles. You should do stretches that will target your back such as the cat-cow stretch and the seated spinal twist. 
  • Walking: Take a walk around your backyard to improve your circulation and to keep your spine mobile.
