Did you know GERD or Acid Reflux can often be relieved by simple stretches and exercises? In this video, I’ll show several stretches and exercises that can help prevent and relieve the symptoms of GERD or acid reflux. So what is Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), also known as acid reflux? It’s when stomach acid flows back up into the esophagus repeatedly causing irritation to the lining of the esophagus. This can cause many symptoms including heartburn, coughing, chest pain, and difficulty swallowing.

Improving overall spinal mobility can help the body with digestion, and improving digestion can help reduce GERD.
