The Cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine can move in different ways. They can flex, extend, rotate and laterally flex, all of which we can improve through stretching and mobility.

During our day to day routine, whether it be sat at a desk or driving to work, our bodies can become incredibly stiff and immobile. Over time this often can be the cause of back pain, or a loss of movement. The more we encourage spinal mobility the more we reduce the chances of experiencing back pain.


The exercises below are only to be carried out under the advice of a health care professional. If you are unsure on how to perform these exercises please arrange an appointment with Kendall sports therapy, where we will be happy to help.


Exercise routine recommendations:2 x 16 Reps per exercise (8 each way)


Times per week will vary, and the more you do it, the more flexibility you will gain. As we are all very busy I like to recommend 3x per week, to make it easier to stick to.
