If you lose range of motion of your spine, you’re more likely to develop spinal degeneration, better known as arthritis. We want to make sure your spine goes through a full range of motion through each plane of motion. What do I mean by that? Your spine should move through three planes in six different directions. The neck should move forward and back, side to side, and left to right. The same thing goes for your lower back. You should be able to bend it forward and back, side to side, and also rotate it.
These two stretches I want you to do daily is to take your neck and your back through a full range of motion. Take it to the end range of motion and hold it for 10 seconds. Six neck stretches take only one minute. Take another minute for back stretches.
It’s simple, but simple habits can create huge impacts for you and your family’s health, when done over time. If you have any questions about this topic or more, please don’t hesitate to call or set up a consultation. Let’s chat!
