Morning Aches & Pains!!


When you wake in the morning, are you ready to attack the day refreshed and with a smile, or are you dreading the oncoming pain that makes you think twice about getting out of bed?

Muscles become tighter and stiffer due to inactivity. You might sleep at night without ever realizing that your neck, shoulders, back, or other parts of the body are affected by hours of motionlessness.

Physical therapy can help you manage a variety of chronic pain conditions. Specific physical therapy exercises can help you ease those morning

aches and pains.

-Shoulder/upper back stretches: While standing, hold your right elbow with the opposite hand and stretch your right arm across the front of your body. Hold for 20-30 seconds, repeating 2 or 3 times for each arm this will loosen the shoulders and upper back. -Knee-to-chest stretches: While lying flat on your back, pull both knees toward you until your feet are flat on the bed. Use hands to pull your right knee, and then your left knee, into your chest. Hold position for 20-30 seconds to loosen up your lower back. This is a wonderful exercise if you suffer from sciatica. -Towel stretches: Foot stretches can relieve your plantar fasciitis pain quickly. On your extended leg, wrap a towel around the bottom of the foot, and then pull the ends of the towel toward you until you feel the muscle lengthen and loosen. These exercises along with other Physical Therapy treatments can help you greet the day with a great outlook instead of a groan!
