Stretches for a Sore Back

Aching back? Rather than reaching for the pain pills, give this stretching routine a try. Hold each stretch from 30-60 seconds, and repeat 3 or 4 times. Don’t forget to do a light warm up before stretching to prepare the muscles for work, and to get fresh, well oxygenated blood flowing to the muscles. Focus on deep relaxed breathing while stretching.
