Is Your Morning Stretch Becoming Tougher?

By Sandy Schroeder

Keeping the body strong and flexible can be tricky. One day everything is fine, but the next morning may be totally different as it becomes a struggle to reach the top shelf, or an effort to bend down and pick something up.

Finding out what is going on and doing something about it can be crucial to keep you moving through tasks at home and at work. Keeping the body limber can make the difference between an easy day and an endless one.

How Your Chiropractor Can Help

Stop in at The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to get the answers you need. The Joint’s licensed chiropractors can help you assess your range of motion and find solutions for any ongoing issues.

As your chiropractor reviews your lifestyle, issues with pain and health history, a gentle targeted spinal adjustment may be the answer for far-reaching pain relief and an overall sense of well-being. Then weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may be the best way to keep your body agile. Stretching exercises can help the joints maintain a healthy range of motion and lower the risk of injury.

Regular stretching – Check with your doctor and consider regular mat stretching, and yoga or tai chi classes for all major muscle tendon areas including the chest, shoulders, lower back, hips, legs and ankles. Each stretch should be held for 15 seconds, repeating three or more times for a total of 60 seconds.

Stretching at work – Take regular breaks and step outside to take a quick walk and stretch a little. Back in the office try these stretches at your desk from Healthline.

Hamstring Stretch

  • Remaining seated, extend one leg outward
  • Bend forward, reaching toward your toes
  • Hold for 10 to 30 seconds
  • Repeat on the other side

Be sure to do this one leg at a time, doing both legs at once puts too much pressure on the back.

Torso stretch, or trunk rotation

  • Keep your feet firmly on the ground, facing forward
  • Twist your upper body in the direction of the arm that’s resting on the back of your chair
  • Hold pose for 10 to 30 seconds
  • Repeat on other side
