Some exercises you can be doing at home to stretch and strengthen your neck and back
Moving your body is an essential part of keeping your body feeling young and pain free. Dr Craig McLean, our Founder and a chiropractor with 20 years experience, filmed a couple of great routines when he was in the gym the other day. We have two series; a basic set of neck and low back stretches and movements to wake up your spine and a more advanced set. If you do have any concerns about whether you should be doing any of these exercises please consult with your chiropractor or if you are new to the community please so not hesitate to call us and ask for a consultation with one of our many experienced chiropractors.
Please do start slowly, stop if there is any pain and with the advanced set, although these were filmed in a gym and some of the exercises can be seen to be using weights, you can do these at home, simply using your body weight (without dumbbells).
Remember the best way to keep your spine supple is to take it through its full range of motion on a daily basis. These exercises will help you in this process.
