Arms Bicep Curl with Resistance Band: This exercise is geared towards those in the mid-stages of rehabilitation or looking to increase muscle tonality. With the use of a resistance band, anchor one end of the band to the floor while holding onto the other. Supporting your working arm with you opposite hand to your back, bend the band your elbow, slowing to pull against the resistance of the band. Once at a 90 degree angle, slowly bend the elbow back, still holding the band, to its original position. Legs Sit to Stand Exercise: Used to gain back mobility, this exercise is common for the rehabilitation of knees. Sit down with your knees bent and feet directly beneath them. Slowly move from the chair to the standing position, and then slowing back to the seating position. Repeat as needed. Back Back Twist: Used to ease back pain, this is an easy and fun exercise you can do at home. Simply lie on your back, bending your knees, with your feet flat on the ground. Roll your bent knees to your right, keeping your shoulders firmly on the floor. Hold for the position for five to ten seconds and then return to the starting position. Repeat on the left side. Do this stretch two or three times a day for the best results. Try these and other stretches and see how they affect you in your everyday life.
