Ache-Stopping Stretch
Soothe a sore back with this helpful move from Dr. Colvin: Get down on all fours; reach your right leg behind you and your left arm in front. (The higher you lift your leg and arm, the more you stretch out your back; it's the opposite of the crunched position we tend to end up in while weeding.) Hold for 5 seconds, then switch sides and repeat.
