Did you know that the majority of upper back and shoulder pain can be traced back to your pectoralis major aka your chest?
With the exception of having a heart attack or a serious medical condition, most of the time, tightness in your chest is uncomfortable, but easily remedied. Besides anxiety and stress, one of the primary causes of upper back pain is from working – either by doing a lot of heavy lifting or working long hours in front of a computer, hunched over a desk all day.
So if you happen to be suffering from discomfort or pain in your upper back, then this quick and easy chest stretch, demonstrated by our good friend Dr. Kai, is the one for you!
Even better is the fact that you can do pretty much anywhere: At home, in the office, at your work site or even while waiting for the bus. Enjoy!
