One day, shortly after my 30th birthday, I woke up in the middle of the night with a terrible pain in my lower back. Since that time, I started experiencing that excruciating pain from time to time. I went to several doctors, but no medicine or chiropractor could help me. So, after a couple of years of struggling, I decided to make a change and incorporate some simple exercises into my daily routine, instead of filling myself up with painkillers. Turned out, this was one of the best decisions of my life.
Step 1. Release tension
How to do it:
- Standing on the floor with your feet wider than hip-width apart, your toes slightly pointed to the sides, and your knees bent, raise your arms and stretch your back and neck upward, as high as you can.
- Then start slowly bending forward until your hands reach the floor.
- Put your hands on the floor and release the muscles of your neck and back.
- Stay in this position for a few seconds, then lift your upper body back into a straight position.
- Repeat the exercise for 30-60 seconds.
