Your FREE home exercise program is listed below; first a quick word about one more thing you can do to “Feel Better Now”…
Heat! Throw a heating pack on there in the morning and at night. (Lots of people ask me “should I put heat or ice on my injury? So many, in fact, I decided to just write a blog post to answer this question – check it out here!). Heat is great at opening up capillary beds and promoting blood flow to an injured area. It also promotes muscle relaxation so it will really help with some of those tight, achy muscles.
