The fastest way to fix a bad back

There are plenty of things you can do to fix your back.

For those who have back pain, you know how uncomfortable it can get especially when travelling long distance or even doing daily things like bending down or carrying things. Back pain can happen for many reasons from pushing, carrying or lifting something too heavy, standing and bending down for long periods and sitting in a hunched position for long periods. Unfortunately, many people stay with the problem until they see the physiotherapist or even chiropractor. There are a few ways that you can reduce that discomfort or even fix back pain. 

Door stretch

If you’re always hunching, this stretch will do wonders for you. Find a doorway in your home where you can do this:

back stretch
STEP 1: Put your arms up in a 90 degree angle and try walking forward. The aim is to stretch your chest out. Hold that stretch until a count of 10 and repeat twice.
back stretch 2
STEP 2: Raise your arms higher and do the same thing. Hold that stretch until a count of 10 and repeat twice.

Stretches for back pain

Here are some exercises you can do at home to help your back.

Hopefully these two tips will help you improve your back pain.
