Okay, I think we’ve now covered all the different body regions when it comes to stretching. That doesn’t mean there won’t be more stretching videos though (assuming everyone reading/watching wants more!) so don’t worry. On that note, if you’d like to see more stretching videos, please leave a comment! And if there’s anything specific you’re requesting let me know that too! I’ve also done some amazing podcast episodes that are relevant here: “Exercise for Chronic Pain with Dr. Frank Nhan,” “Pelvic Floor Physio with Queenie Woo,” “The Essentials to Health with Dr. Stephan Bohemier,” “How Stress and Anxiety Manifest in the Body with Dr. Alex Triendl,” and “Massage Therapy for Chronic Pain with Danielle Potvin.” Head over to the “Podcast” page to get access or check out – Chronically Living and how to make the most of it – wherever you get your podcasts!
Most of my home workouts come from an app called 30-Day Fitness. I’m not affiliated with them at all, and there are a ton of great workout apps out there. Since the gyms are closed because of Covid (where I live anyway), and most people with chronic illness would not feel super safe going to them at this time, coming up with a good home workout routine is important. These are just a few of the exercises I do. Make sure you consult a professional as necessary before trying anything out. Everyone’s abilities and needs are different.
For more on why exercise can be helpful for chronic pain, check out my podcast episode featuring Dr. Frank Nhan, “Exercise for Chronic Pain.” The link for Apple is below, and the show is also available on Spotify and everywhere you get your podcasts. If you like what Dr. Nhan has to say, please submit a review on Apple!
