1. These stretches are not designed to be medical advice. First consult a medical professional to ensure you don’t have an issue that requires medical attention (ie. break, infection, tumor, tear or organ involvement.)
2. If any of the stretches cause pain, stop doing it and move on to the next one.
1. Do the stretches at least once daily until the pain is gone for a full 24 hours. For faster results, repeat the sequence as much as 10x/day in the order given. If any stretch causes discomfort, skip that stretch for now and reintroduce it later.
2. Once the tension, aches and pains are gone, use the daily warm-up exercises to stay feeling young and active.
