Here’s a great stretch for back pain relief in the upper back. It gives a nice stretch to the area at the tops of the shoulders and can reach down as far as the shoulder blade area.
You can sit or stand comfortably for this one.
Start by taking your right arm up at a 90 degree angle in front of you with the elbow bent at a 90 degree angle so your fingers point up. Take your left arm under the right arm and wrap it around that right arm.
Bring your palms together if you can. If not, use a strap or something that you can hold on to with your hands. Bring your hands as close together as you can.
Once you have a good hold, take your hands up and away from you. Keep breathing as you hold the stretch. Continue to take your hands up and away.
You can also round your back, and really push your elbows away from you for extra stretch to help with middle back pain.
I hope you like the stretch. And, thanks to Anthony for showing us another back pain relief stretch.
