These stretches can be done in 5-10 minutes 1-2 times a day or as needed throughout the day after sitting or standing a long time. You can be your own medicine and set yourself free from chronic back pain! Our bodies were made to move. When we don’t move we stick together like tape. Most chronic pain simply comes from lack of daily movement and dehydration causing our fascia tissue layers in our body to stick together in adhesions that cause pain and stiffness of tight muscles that can pull our bones out of alignment like tight rubber bands! The solution to this kind of chronic annoying daily pain like lower back and sciatica can be as simple and easy as drinking half of our body weight in water and stretching every day in the morning before we get out of bed and at night before we close our eyes to go to sleep. The magic is in the repetition. Health comes from daily movement that promotes circulation, decreases inflammation, raises endorphins, and stimulates detox via lymphatic drainage. The most effective health care we can do ourselves each day is to move more.
