Are you ready to roll? I recently asked patient with low back pain if he was doing his low back exercises. He replied, “Religiously! On Christmas and Easter!!!” Right idea, wrong frequency 🙂
As you can see, even Remi stretches before exercise. He will do the appropriately named upward and downward dog stretch. For a person, a few minutes of rolling can do wonders for a sore low back, mid back or shoulder girdle. If you have difficulty on the floor you can work on the wall. Click here for some examples.
Why should I roll?
- Reduces injury and speeds up recovery.
- Improve flexibility without impairing strength.
- Faster fitness results.
- Simple self-massage.
- Improves posture.
A minute or two of rolling goes a long way. Consistency is the key. Do this a couple of times a week vs a couple times a year 🙂
We’ll end with a quote from Jim Morrison of the DOORS- “Let it roll baby roll.”
