Buy the seated stretches worksheetThis seated stretching routine for seniors focuses on simple stretches that can help loosen up the muscles in the neck, shoulders, back, hips, and knees.

This seated routine is performed in realtime, so it’s easy to follow along.  It’s a great daily routine for seniors or for anyone looking for an easy but effective seated stretching routine.

The routine starts off with a warmup including cervical rotation and sidebend, as well as deep breathing will get the muscles warm and loose.

The first stretch is also an exercise. Chin tucks are a great way to help loosen up the neck and shoulder muscles as well as reset the muscles that might get overworked or fatigued when not using correct posture.

Next, an upper trapezius stretch and a shoulder stretch with the hands clasped above will help the neck and shoulder muscles as well as the chest and upper back area.

Finally, a chair roll down and seated hip flexor stretch work the lower back and hips as well as the knees.
