The Stretch and Strengthening Exercises Series

Hi I am Dr. Bruce Whittingham.

Why do we need to stretch? The body is designed to move, but unfortunately because of our posture, the stress we carry, and the injuries we protect for our muscles get very tight. The longer we leave it the tighter they get.

The only way to change this is to stretch and stretch regularly.

We are going to bring Wes onboard and he is going to show us how to do the stretches.

We are going to do lower back, hips, legs, chest, shoulders, neck, all of the stretches you need to get through a busy hectic schedule.

Core Strength and Back Stretch

Adjusting Children

People are often curious as to why would a child need a Chiropractic adjustment, and this stems from a preconceived idea that Chiropractors just treat bad backs.

When you realise a Chiropractic adjustment helps to remove interference to the nervous system – which governs all function in the body, it makes perfect sense to want to check a child and make sure the brain body connection is functioning without interference.

Glut Stretch

The Glut stretch is great for relieving tension in the buttocks and hips. Simply lay in a comfortably spot, hold the flexed knee with both hands and pull the knee across the body and up towards the opposite shoulder.

STOP this exercise if you feel pain in the groin, ask you Chiropractor for an alternative way to do this exercise.

Hamstring Stretch

The Hamstring stretch releases tension from the back of the legs up to the pelvis. This muscle is released by standing facing towards a chair, step or ledge and placing one heel on the object. Keep the knee straight and the toes pointed towards your head, run the hand on the same side as the leg being stretched down the front of the leg towards the toes.

STOP if you feel pain in your low back – you should only feel a stretching in the back of the leg! Hold the stretch for 30 seconds and repeat 3 times on each side.

Hip Adductors – Groin Stretch

This is great for the hip Adductors (inner thigh and groin).

Stand with you feet wide apart and at 90 degrees to each other, then bend the front knee whilst keeping the back leg straight.

Neck and Thoracic Roll

To help prevent stooping posture and “Tech Neck” this is a great exercise you can do before going to sleep – just lay in the bed with the rolls under your upper back and neck for 20 minutes and relax.

Stop if you experience dizziness or pain – consult your Chiropractor for advice.

Cat Stretch

Great way to release tension across the low back, whilst also helping to activate the core muscles without compressing irritated nerves or discs.
