As an avid yoga practitioner, I am all into stretching. In fact, in my house, the saying is, “You know what’s good for that? Yoga!” whenever one of us has an ache or pain.
While there are home remedies that work for minor or temporary back pain, a regular stretching program IS good for low back pain relief. These exercises reduce tension in the muscles that support the spine, improve your range of motion, and lower the risk of disability caused by back pain.

A Note from GR8NESS
If you have chronic pain – longer than three months – stretching regularly may successfully reduce your pain. Many stretches can easily be done at home. Be sure to discuss any stretching exercise program with your doctor before you begin.
