Back Pain Relief Tip: A Stretch For Upper Back Pain

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.

Hello and welcome to my blog! There are several reasons I decided to start writing a blog on natural self-healing. The main thing I want to do is to share information on health and healing so that people can take action to heal themselves using natural techniques. I have met so many people who couldn't afford natural health care. They may have had health insurance, but they didn't trust that model. Many people want to know how to be healthy naturally. They want to know what really works and what doesn't. They want to be health conscious and often fail because of poor information, lack of knowledge, bad science and other factors. This blog is intended to help demystify the body and its various functions and to help people understand what is really needed to obtain optimum health. One of the great things about knowledge of the body is that once you know and understand how it works it becomes easy to know what the right things to do for it. And, it is much easier to do the right things when the consequences of the wrong things are fully understood. To do this I will be drawing from the knowledge of many people that I have learned from. I will talk about biochemistry relating that to what is needed to obtain optimum health. There will be information about the physical structure of the body and how to keep that aligned and functioning well. A major part of yoga has to do with health, so information about yogic techniques will be included. Mental and emotional health are important for the health of the body/mind, so articles about these topics will be included. And, there will be an occasional article about me and what I am up to. Hopefully I can relate that back to some health issue as well. The title Self Adjusting Technique comes from my technique for self-adjusting the structural part of the body, that is adjusting the body's various vertebrae and joints. For this blog it will include the idea of how to adjust health issues for yourself and those you care about. With a little knowledge there is a lot people can do to help heal themselves and stay healthy. I want to explain complex information about the body in a way that is easy to understand and useful. The comments section will help in that goal as people can ask for clarification if there is something they don't understand. And maybe we can get some helpful input from people smarter than me that will benefit us all. I hope you find information that can help you with your health issues. Kalidasa
