Don't Let Back Pain Ruin The Holidays

The holidays are a time to enjoy being with family and friends. You should be worrying if Grandma is going to like your new recipe for sugar cookies, not worrying about low back pain. The combination of traveling, leaning over to wrap gifts, prolonged standing while cooking and sitting at dinners can put a lot of stress on the low back.

 

Here are some simple exercises you can do while sitting to help keep your low back moving and pain free:

 

-Pelvic tilts

-Nerve glides

-Figure-4 stretch

-Rotation stretch

 

Check out the video below for a demonstration of each. You can start to sprinkle these exercises in during the day.

 

Here is to a fun and pain free holiday season!
