Stretches for cramps, back pain, bloating and more

Sometimes less is more. And if you can relieve an ache or pain with targeted stretches instead of a medication that might have side effects, it’s worth a shot, right? (Plus, stretching always makes us feel better physically and can help with stress, too.)

In this article we ran across on the Health website, we found detailed instructions for how to do certain yoga poses/stretches that may help some common ailments, including cramps, back pain, teeth grinding pain, ringing in the ears, bloating and more.

The name of the article is “10 Yoga Poses That Help With Bloating, Back Pain, Cramps, and More” by writer Ashley Lauretta (and medically reviewed by Marrisa Sansone, MD)

The article includes photos that will help you learn to do yoga stretches using the right technique and form. (If you need a video demonstration of each pose, just Google the pose name, and you’ll find plenty of videos, too.)

We hope these low-impact stretches help you get relief from the aches and pains that sometimes come with adulting.
