I need help with exercise and stretching for good posture.
    #4393585 - 07/11/05 09:12 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I've been having some back pains lately as I've been struggling with my posture. In order to get rid of my back pains, I think I need to learn how to stretch and develop the musculature to maintain a good posture comfortably. The back pain is mostly in and around and on top of my shoulder blades. Does anyone know some good resources or ideas for how to start to exercise to develop good posture and also how to stretch well?

Thanks.

A good way to stretch out your back is to get one of those large exercise balls. You lean back on it and let your spine curve around the ball and keep your feet on the floor. You can do this while watching tv or reading.
When you are in bed, lay on your back and place a small pillow under the small of your back ... right above your ass. This will straighten out your back and reduce the strain on your shoulders.
When sitting at a table pull the chair directly up to it so that you are forced to sit upright. If your chair is pushed far away from the table, without thinking people tend to slouch, or lean in to it to rest their elbows down.

Hope this helps! Good luck.

A strong and well trained back will be far less prone to injury. Exercises like good mornings, deadlifts, hyperextensions, and seated wide grip rows will strengthen your back quite a bit. If your back is hurting as a result of a spine problem then you will likely need to see a chiropractor.

Do sit ups. They help your back.
