Okay, I am back with another video and article for you. I know I’ve done a lot of videos already. I really enjoyed filming them as I believe that this is the best way to help you overcome your injury and pain, as well as assist you in getting back to a pain-free life.
Today’s video and article is about upper back pain. A sore upper back is a common complaint most among those who do a lot of computer work. Here are some quick stretches that you can do anywhere to help you relieve your upper back discomfort.
One more thing before I go – I just want to inform you that on Thursday I will be filming more YouTube videos. If you like my videos, make sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel. Also, send me a reply if you have any video ideas that you want me to talk about.
In today’s video, I will go through quick upper back pain stretches.

I got Donnalee to demonstrate.
#1 –Sit and Rotate
Sit and Rotate
Sit upright with your hands behind your head, rotate to one side, and then rotate to the other side. Really try to focus on the upper back area. We are trying to loosen up the upper back area in this mobility stretch. Start off with 3 repetitions on each side. You are rotating in a smooth controlled movement. Hold for 2 seconds and then move to the other side. You can progress up to 5 to 10 repetitions on each side to help loosen up your upper back area.
#2 – Sit and Arch
Sit and Arch
Sit upright with your hands behind your head, and slowly arch your back over the chair. You are not trying to get too much movement in the low back area. We want to focus most of the movement to happen in the upper back area. Be sure to arch in a slow and controlled manner. Hold the end position for a second or two and then come back to the start position. You can start with 3 repetitions and then progress to 5-10 repetitions.
