If you’re seeing a chiropractor for your back issues, it’s important to maintain their therapeutic techniques at home. This does not mean attempting to re-enact their therapy methods. Chiropractors are trained professionals and attempting to perform therapy on yourself without their supervision can be harmful. However, at-home stretching methods can help your chiropractic therapy prove to be more effective.
The Cat Pose
Get on your knees with your hands on the ground in front you, parallel to your shoulders. Move your head down and your spine up at the same time until you resemble a cat stretching its back.
The Dog Pose
Opposite of the cat pose, this stretch involves raising your head up and spine down at the same time until your back is arches.
The Cobra Pose
Lay flat on your stomach and lift your upper back up by pushing against the floor until your arms are stretched out all the way.
Upward-Facing Hip Twist
In this pose, you’ll lay flat on your back and lift your right knee to your chest. Then you’ll twist your knee over to your left side. Repeat with the opposite knee.
Sit up with your legs lying straight in front of you. Take your right foot and place it on the outside of your left thigh. Twist the left side of your body towards your right. Repeat with the opposite foot.
Upper Spinal Rotation
Lay flat on your back and extend your arms out far from each other. Raise your knees to your chest and proceed to twist them from your right to your left side, repeatedly.
