Back pain is the disease of the century with around 90% of adults experiencing it at some point in their lives. It is also the most classic cause of work-related disability: many days are lost because of the pain caused by back pain.
OMGIFacts has prepared a daily routine of 15 minutes that will not only help you get rid of back pain but also prevent it from coming back. Remember that warm-up exercises are necessary before you start.
Hamstring floor stretches
- Lie on your back, one leg bent.
- Using a stretching ribbon and with your hands, pull the straight leg straight up and then towards the face. Pull until the stretch is comfortable but difficult.
- Hold this position for 30 seconds and do the same with the other leg.
- Repeat this exercise twice.
How does it help? Stretching the hamstring can reduce back pain by lengthening the thigh muscles. Longer muscles relieve pressure on the lower back and limit pain.
