Simple Exercises for Spine Health

It’s important to keep your spine strong and healthy so you can keep doing the physical activities you love and avoid spinal pain that can affect your entire body. Stretching and simple exercises are fantastic for spine health. Here are a few ideas to add to your exercise routine:

Chin to chest – you can try this one both sitting and standing. Slowly tilt your head until your chin reaches your chest. This is a good choice for alleviating neck pain when sitting at a desk all day.

Hip stretch – Start with your front knee bent to a 90-degree angle. The back knee can be as bent or extended as is comfortable for you. Rotate the back hip toward the front heel, and then toward the back foot. Keep the chest up tall, and only bear as much weight as you can comfortably. If you feel comfortable with the knee bent, you can work on straightening out the back leg into a full pigeon pose.

Back flexion – lay on your back and pull both knees to the chest. Press your head forward for a gentle stretch of your neck and lower back.
