Yoga for the Spine

If you sit at a desk for most of the day, you may understand the pain I’ve had in my back and shoulders for the past week. I’ve tried a number of things to sooth it, Icy Hot patches, stretches, Ibuprofen, and finally resorting to laying flat on my back on the floor for  30 minutes. Everything helped a little – for a short period of time.

Then someone suggested I try a couple yoga poses. They seemed to help more than other solutions. By no means a miracle cure, but definitely a step in the right direction.

When I came across the following article this morning, it hit home. There is an explanation of how the spine is affected by my daily habits, my working habits, and my excuses for skipping out on the gym.

See the full article in Daily Health Post to gain a better understanding of how you can strengthen your spine.

Then try the exercise in the video.
