    Fix # 3: Supine Stretch

    According to Dr. Oz ``when you sit, you actually put more tension on your spine than when you stand’’. He adds that on an average a person spends 50-60 hours per week sitting which is the main cause of back pain.

    He adds that the pain is caused due to the stress on spine which leads to a lowered blood circulation to the disks between the vertebrae. This eventually causes the disks to dry and stiffen. Because of this, when a person makes a move in a direction without the needed flexibility in the spine an injury is caused that results in back pain.

    In order to prevent this back pain and to let the spine be more flexible, Dr. Oz suggests that supine stretch must be done a regular basis. You may cease to live a healthy life as soon as your spine stops functioning properly. Hence, preventing any kind of spine disorder is vital.
