Joint pain relief - knees, lower back, shoulder, neck & more.
You can get back pain for a variety of reasons but the most common one is by working all day sitting or standing all day without proper posture.
Stretch exercises is a great way to avoid back pain, since it stretches the muscles, joints, bones, etc, thus promoting fluid and blood flow.
Stretch workouts include shoulder shrug, triceps, arm, leg, trunk, torso, and other stretches.
To help you avoid (or relieve) some back pain we can perform a few workouts to help you stretch those muscles.

Joint pain exercises
When you workout doing exercises that help you correct your posture, over time, your pain will go away. The hard thing for you now is that you have pain preventing you to workout in the first place.
The trick is finding workouts that won't add to your pain and that will give you relief after your first sessions. That's where I come in!
First we get your body warmed up and moving with minimal pain. Then we work on correcting your posture and strenghtening your balance and stability. Doing these types of exercises will prevent your joints from hurting again.
Think of your muscles as a corset or protective case around your joints and skeletal system. The more you strenghten the muscles, the better protected your joints will be. This is why strenght training and endurance workouts are important.
Weight loss to keep joint pain away
As you work on the first 3 baby steps you will notice some weight loss. Your underactive muscles will start waking up and getting their work on thus burning some fat.
To make sure the joint pain does not return, once your posture is corrected and your muscles are strong, we focus on weight loss. This is the fun part! You'll be able to do harder workouts and you'll start seeing just how much stronger and faster you are.
If you ever turned down invitations to go hiking because you didn't want to "slow down" the group, now you can go out there and have fun!
Once you get to an ideal and healthy weight, the final two baby steps are all about maintaning your new healthy lifestyle and enjoying your life. You are now able to do everything you wanted to do before like running around with your kids, go shopping or even running a marathon!
