Do Stretching Really Work?

Stretching lower back is one of the best things you can do for yourself to prevent further pain or injury to the lower back and help the muscles become more flexible and stronger. There is not much scientific research supporting the idea that stretching actually helps with long-term prevention or even helps you heal quicker or speeds up a slower return to activity. However, there are many lower back stretches that you can do safely in your home that will serve to greatly improve your posture, and increase flexibility. These stretches can also help reduce tension in other areas of your body that may be contributing to your pain.

Benefits of Stretching

If you continue to experience back pain, even after you have been stretching for a while, it may be that you just have a weak or tight muscle or group of muscles in your abdomen or lower back. If you have joint problems, it is possible that you are putting too much strain on one particular joint. When you perform an exercise to strengthen any muscle in your body, especially the muscles in your back, it is important to make sure that the muscles you are using are strong enough to withstand the stress. You do not want to strain a muscle in your back and end up causing more pain or injury. Stretching regularly will not only help to keep you healthy and prevent back pain, but it will also keep you pain free for longer periods of time.
