The Healthy Back Blog: For mums

Are you still doing your stretches? by louisehampton

This is something I ask my patients all the time but for busy mums it is also extremely important. A lot of our exercise comes from running after the children and walking to the park etc which is great but it is so important to do stretches and especially pelvic floor exercises as well.

Here’s a reminder of some of the best exercises to do:

Lying on your back try bringing one leg towards your chest and hold the stretch for 10 seconds. Repeat with the other leg. If you find this easy then try bringing both legs up together towards your chest.

On all four’s gently arch your back up and then down to stretch.

Then lean back onto your heels

Pelvic floor exercises – sucking in the bottom of your tummy and clenching down below. Hold for 30 seconds or as long as you can.

With all these exercises they should be done very gently and if you experience any pain stop and consult someone like a Chiropractor for advice.

I am a chiropractor in Hertfordshire working from a clinic on Buntingford High Street. I offer free consultations so people can see if Chiropractic would be able to help them.

If you are local to the area why not give us a call on 01763 878087. We have weekend and evening appointments and are registered with the BCA and GCC.

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Many thanks

Hi Thanks for the comments. I think it is quite easy to set up a word press blog – someone set this one up for me but it is very easy to navigate and post new blogs. Good luck with your blog. Louise

This can be a intelligent blog. I mean it. You may have so significantly knowledge about this concern, and so significantly passion. You also know the way to make men and women rally behind it, obviously from the responses. Youve got a style here thats not too flashy, but makes a statement as huge as what youre saying. Fantastic job, indeed.
