In the next few weeks, we will be focusing our simple exercises on your thoracic spine, the area in-between your lower back and neck. The ‘Cat Camel Stretch’ is best for flexing and extending your spine. Your back will feel energised and relaxed after this.
Target: To flex and extend your spine
Step 1: Start in a stable position on all fours and relax your head.
Step 2: Arch for a round back, then tuck your tail bone under and allow your head and neck to be relaxed while looking between your legs.
Step 3: Slowly look forward, and draw the shoulders away from your ears and dip the lower spine while aiming the tail bone to the sky. Repeat 10 times slowly.
** Please note it is highly recommended you seek advice from a physiotherapist before commencing any stretching exercise if you experience pain.
