CareXpress Urgent Care Tips: 3 Simple Stretches
Some people experience stress on their lower back after they have been sitting down at a desk all day long (whether it be for work or for school). This problem can also lead to other body parts feeling very stiff. It’s important for those that have a stationary work life or sit in classrooms all day to get a little relief. When you are in need of quick relief and you’re not in a place where a full exercise routine is an option, completing some easy stress relief stretches is an easy way to get some of that stiffness to dissipate. Today, our urgent care blog is centered around 3 simple stretches that anyone can do.
Here are 3 stretches to help you get through your day and they may also relieve some stress:
1.) Corner Wall Back Stretch: Stand facing the corner of a room with your palms facing the wall and elbows slightly below shoulder height. Place each hand and forearm on each side of the corner and push yourself towards it as if to complete a push-up. Hold this stretch for at least 20-30 seconds.
2.) Standing Quadriceps Stretch: Stand on one foot and bend the other behind you, grabbing your foot and pulling it in towards your buttocks. Hold this for at least 20-30 seconds and switch to other leg.
3.) Standing Arm And Neck Stretch: Place one arm down at your side. Slightly stretch the arm out and drop your head to the opposite shoulder. Hold this stretch for 20-30 seconds and release. Repeat the process 3 times on each side.
