/* 468x60, */

Back pain can be one of the most painful and uncomfortable feelings we lug around with us every day. Does this sound familiar? Back pain is an ailment that should be taken very seriously. A great deal of times, back pain is the starting symptom to a much more serious injury. Therefore, we want to make sure we are performing back stretching exercises to see if we can work it our ourselves, or it might just be time for a visit to the doctor.

When performing back stretching exercises, be careful not to over exert yourself or to put to much of a workload on yourself. You can cause more damage than good and you may in fact be stuck on the floor not able to get up from the exercises I am recommending for you. At any rate, just start slowly and work yourself into a nice steady, but controlled routine.

Here are a few exercises you can begin with:

1. Lie on the floor, back facing down, knees bent upwards, feet flat on the floor.
2. Grab the back side of your thighs and pull your legs towards you until a comfortable stretch is achieved.
3. Hold this pose for approximately 10 to 15 seconds and slowly return to starting position.
4. Repeat this exercise for 15 repetitions

Next, I would try this one:

1. Lie on the floor, back facing down, knees bent upwards, feet flat on the floor.
2. Push the small of your back down and into the floor by tightening your lower abs
3. Hold this pose for approximately 10 to 15 seconds and slowly return to starting position.
4. Repeat this exercise for 15 repetitions

While these are a few basic back stretching exercises that you can try, there are many more out there to be found. Feel free to find others that work and are comfortable for you. Properly stretching your back and removing the pain you are encountering can be wonderful. If you are serious about your health, don't procrastinate any longer!
