Kneeling Thread the Needle
As daily stressors build up, we often don’t notice the tension in our upper back until we have a stiff neck or headache. This stretch helps to alleviate the tension by loosening the muscles of the back and neck.
1.Begin the stretch in a flat table top position on your hands and knees. Extend your right arm out to the side in line with your shoulder.
2.To get into the proper stretch position,bend your left elbow down as you reach your right arm along the floor under and across your body. Reach as far as you can until you feel a stretch along the right side or until your right shoulder is on the floor.
EASIER: As an option to getting on the floor for this stretch, try leaning over a table or desk.
Lying Chest Lift (Cobra)
If you’re looking for a stretch that’s relaxing yet works the entire torso, this stretch is for you! It provides an excellent release for the spine and benefits the abdominal muscles as well as many other muscles and joints.
1.Begin by lying flat on the floor with your hands shoulder width apart in line with your eyes.Keep your toes on the floor.
2.Keeping your lower body in contact with the floor, raise your shoulders and head as far as your flexibility allows.
3.Extend your arms fully and push your upper body up toward the ceiling, finishing with your neck long and head high.
Tips to Avoid Stretching the Muscles the Wrong Way
Stretching the Wrong Way Feeling pain in the muscle and not breathing during stretching are counterproductive, there are other things that should also be avoided.
One of the most important rules is to never static stretch a cold muscle. This being said, you should always do an active warm-up before you begin static stretching. This could be a short walk or jog or a routine of dynamic stretches prior to a workout; or you could wait to complete your stretching routine after a workout.
Stretching with a foam roller and/or dynamic stretch that can also be performed before starting static stretches.Another rule to remember is you should never “bounce” as you’re holding a stretch. This can lead to injury to the muscles or connective tissues.
Dynamic stretching can provide superior results and is considered much safer. Don’t look at stretching as a way to heal an injury. If you feel like you’ve injured a muscle, consult with a doctor before beginning a stretching routine. Overstretching too soon after some injuries can extend your recovery time

Back pain is common for usually everyone. Research shows that 80% of the adults suffer from back pain every year. Back pain can occur in people of any age group. But it is common between people aged between 35 and 60. There is no particular reason for back pain. External injury, internal injury, deformation in bones, accidents and many more factors can be responsible for causing back pain.
Upper back pain can occur due to inflammation of the neck and spine. Lower back pain can be associated with lower back muscles, nerves, and spines, abdomen region, vertebrae discs etc.
What are the risk factors for having a back pain?
There are several physical and mental issues that cause back pain. These are as follows:
