Is it a good idea to stretch at night or would that be bad for me?

As someone with fibromyalgia & has had low back surgery I have a lot of muscle & joint pain as well as spinal compression pain. I stretch often throughout the day- to loosen up in the morning, to cope with spasms & compression during the day and at night to release tension accumulated throughout the day. Foam rollers may help or some yoga poses that target trouble areas

I stretch multiple times a day. When I first wake before I get out of bed. Again after I shower. Also because I have a desk job, I try and get up every hour or so to stretch and walk for at least 5 to 10 mins. Prior to foing to bed I will do a good stretch out just to release any tension I may be carrying.

I feel much better during the day after stretchung in the morning and then wake up feeling a bit more relaxed after stretching before bed.

I'd say; "go for it"
Stretching at night may help you sleep a little better, similar to exerciseing just less strenuous. Stretch away & get a better night's sleep.
Good Luck!! Happy Dreams!

Stretching at night is great for your body, specially if it’s before going to bed. Stretching can improve your sleep by removing some of your body tension and preventing sleep-disrupting cramps. Just make sure to stick to simple stretches, a big workout before bed can have the opposite effect. 😊

I think it can be just fine to stretch at night. I'd say that gentle, relaxing stretch would be best. It will possibly prepare you to relax for sleep, also! I'd say back stretches, body lengthening, and maybe even cat/cow stretches would be good at night! Good luck!

It definitely wouldn’t be bad to stretch at night before bed but if yo I want to try like some nighttime yoga and Meditation that could really help loosen up our muscles and joints and get you really prepared for bed

It is a good idea and would be good for you to stretch at night. Make it a part of your good night routine, to release the stress and tension of the day, relax your muscles and help get a good night's sleep.

I believe it is a good idea to stretch at night. It is also a good idea to stretch in the morning. Greater flexibility is a good thing not a bad thing.

I personally don’t stretch before bed, but it’s a good idea because it relaxes your tense muscles and will make you more relaxed for sleeping.

It's not bad at all, there are specific bedtime stretch sessions you can find on YouTube. I personally prefer to stretch in the morning and evening too
