Chiropractic Exercises You Can Do for Back Pain

Chiropractic isn’t merely about going into your chiropractor’s office and getting a treatment done. It’s about a holistic process, which includes consultations, advice on lifestyle changes, at-home treatments you can do and more.
That’s why you can work at home on improving your lower back pain and the trouble you’re having with sitting or standing because of it. It has been concluded that approximately 80 percent of Americans struggle with back pain on a daily basis.

We’re going to show you 3 of the exercises that you can do to improve your back pain:

  • Modified cobra: You need to lie down on your stomach, with your face down and bend your elbows and place your arms flat out on the ground in unison with your chest. Press on the floor gently and raise up your head and your upper body, while keeping your pelvis flat on the floor. Do this for about 10 seconds and repeat it slowly about 4 or 5 times.

  • Child’s pose: Kneel down on the floor, on your hands and knees and open your knees just a bit wider than hip distance. Then, slant your toes inward and push your hips backwards and bend your knees. When you feel comfortable, then stretch your arms forward completely and let your head fall forward until you feel relaxed. Do this about 4 or 5 times.

  • Knee to chest, 1 or both: Lie down on your back, with your legs stretched out straight. Then, lift one of your legs toward your chest until it feels tense. Keep your 10 to 20 seconds. Return your leg to the original position and then repeat the action with the other leg.

  • Remember to consult with your chiropractor first, before you do any of these exercises. If you get the ‘go-ahead’ to continue, then do so and see if your back pain improves. If you want to see a chiropractor to help you out with your back and body aches, then give us a call.
