Dr. Michael Horowitz's Stretch of the Day Series
- The Sholder Pinch Stretch! This stretch is perfect for those who spend hours sitting or for those who are experiencing tightness in their shoulders, upper or lower back. Try this stretch while sitting or standing. Take your shoulder blades and squeeze them together with a gentle pinch. Squeeze and hold for 10-15 seconds. Then relax and shake out. You can also follow up with stretch with reaching your arms forard and flexing your mid-back forward. Feel this stretch in your back, arms and shoulder blades. This stimulates blood flow to your rhomboids, lats and thoracic muscles, an area that holds a lot of tension.
