Back Towel Stretch for your Upper Back, Shoulders by Upland Claremont Cucamonga Chiropractor

This exercise allows you to stretch most muscles of the upper body at one time.  When you feel healthy and are injury-free, the towel stretch keeps the muscles loose together.  Then these muscles can function together to perform your daily motions and strengthen during exercise, without injury.

Here is how it works:

Start with holding the towel behind you against your back, using your right/upper hand with the palm facing the back of your head.  Then hold the bottom of the towel with your left/lower hand facing away at your low back.  This position should feel comfortable with some tightness, but not pain.

Step 1: Pull UP with the right hand.  This will stretch the left side and arm (tricep, shoulder, upper back, chest, neck). Hold for 15 seconds.

Step 2: Pull DOWN with the lower/left hand.  This will stretch the right side and arm (tricep, shoulder, neck, upper back, chest). Hold for 15 seconds.

Step 3: Repeat 3 times for 15 seconds each.

Step 4: Switch side.  Repeat steps 1-3.

ALWAYS start with and hold good posture during this stretch, keeping your head back.

Everyone is at a unique state of health.
