Unfortunately, most people stretch too little, and when they do, the do so too aggressively. The result: torn muscles, a sense of frustration, and generally more pain.

Stretching is just like brushing your teeth:
- Stretch every day – spinal hygiene is important.
- Don’t push it too hard – the gums don’t bleed, but you can tear a muscle.
