Stiffness in the upper back and shoulders can develop over time, especially if you have an office based job. This can lead to compensations and eventually pain in the muscles around the neck and lower back.
Below you'll find a short (less than 3 minutes) set of exercises - that you can do once or twice per day to keep your upper back and shoulders healthy and mobile 👇
This would be really helpful for anyone who spends time sitting in front of computer or driving around a lot.
Movement is Medicine!
