Stretches Tailored for Seniors

As we age, it's normal for our bodies to lose some flexibility, but that doesn't mean you should resign to living with aches, pains, and declining mobility. Regular stretching can help loosen muscles, relax joints, and reduce pain. The best part is, you don't need to go to the gym to start a stretching routine. Here are three easy stretches you can do every day from the comfort of your home.

Seated Shoulder Stretch

This simple shoulder stretch helps loosen the shoulder joint. It can help alleviate pain or stiffness in the neck and shoulder regions. Start by sitting up as straight as you can in a chair. Reach your right arm across your body until you feel a stretch. Then, use your left hand to push your right arm closer to your chest gently. Hold for 10-30 seconds, then repeat with your other arm.

Neck Stretch

If you've ever woken up with a kink in your neck, you know that neck pain can get in the way of driving, socializing, and spending time doing the hobbies you love. This stretch is a quick and easy way to get some relief. Sit or stand straight with both feet firmly planted on the floor. Tilt your head to the left as far as you can without discomfort. Then, reach over your head with your left arm and pull your head towards your left shoulder. Hold for 30 seconds before repeating on the other side.

Hamstring Stretch

Stretching your hamstrings can help maintain mobility and flexibility in your hips. It's one of the best stretches you can do to help improve your posture and reduce your risk of injury during physical activity. Sit down in a chair and rest your heel on the floor in front of you. Slowly lean forward from your hips until you feel a stretch. Make sure you don't round your back during this exercise. Hold for 10-30 seconds, then repeat with the other leg.

With just three easy stretches, you can lower your risk of injury and help keep your body limber, flexible, and mobile. For more senior health and wellness tips, or to learn more about life at Ebenezer Senior Living, keep an eye on our blog.
