“Lion’s stretching” is a perfect exercise to prevent back, thoracic and neck pain. It strengthen and stretch the spine, from coccyx to the skull, via shoulders and neck. It re-learns abdominal breathing through the belly and perineum muscles. Many variations are then possible. A shoulder problem should be treated (by osteopathy) to perform this exercise. The prior release (by an osteopath) of the diaphragm, pelvis and spine facilitate its implementation.
