Exercises/Stretches for General Aches and Pains

Core Strength is Crucial to Relieving Aches and Pains

The Mayo Clinic website has a great section on Core Exercises.  Having a strong core can alleviate many aches and pains in your back and neck and allow you to be more comfortable during physical activity.

Core exercises train the muscles to work in harmony. This leads to better balance and stability.  Weak core muscles leave you susceptible to poor posture, lower back pain and muscle injuries.

You can feel the improvement in just a few minutes a day! The Core Exercises included here are on the Mayo Clinic website healthy lifestyle section if you would like clear instruction for each one. To do just 5 a day, rotating through the list, doesn't take much time and you will notice reduced aches and pains!

I would love to hear your success stories!
