Essential Back Stretch for Relieving Repetitive Stress

Continue stretching your back with a reverse back stretch.
  • Place your palms on the back of your pelvis and lean back from the waist.
  • Drop your head back.
  • Hold for a few seconds.

If you have poor balance, spread your feet and take a wider stance.

This opens up your chest cavity and hips, elongating the spine along the natural "S" curve.
