Upper Back Active Stretch

Comments off

This active stretch is designed to energize and recondition the spinal muscles responsible for holding you upright.  Many of us suffer from pain between the shoulder blades, from muscles that have been fatigued from working in a seated position for long hours.  This exercise / stretch will give you back the motor control and strength that have been lost to pain and dysfunction.  Perform this as often as possible throughout the day, doing 5-10 repetitions each time.  This exercise alone will not recondition the upper spinal muscles.  Specifically focused bodywork will be an essential partner in any reconditioning effort.
