Dr. Michael Horowitz's Stretch of the Day Series
Stretch of the Day:
- The Pits & The Rolls! Rolls (ROLLS) your shoulder forward &/or backward 10 times. This stimulates blood flow to an area that holds a lot of tension. Now lateral tilt your head towards one of your shoulders and assist the stretch by gently pulling the head that that shoulder. Hold for 15-seconds. Now do the same for the opposite side. Modify the stretch by tilting the head 45-degrees to the armpit (PITS) and assist the stretch by gently pulling the head to that armpit. Hold for 15-seconds. Now do the same for the opposite armpit. Repeat throughout the day. This stretch is great a reducing neck & shoulder tension caused by long hours of sitting in front of computers, reading or writing.
