Physiotherapist Charissa Fermelis shares a stretch for your chest, back and shoulders.
- Lying on your side with your head and neck supported, begin with your arms reaching forward.
- Slide your top hand along the bottom arm, across your chest, and eventually unfold the elbow to stretch the arm out long. You should feel a full rotation of your waist and trunk and a stretch from fingertip to fingertip.
- Aim to one day have your arms and upper back flat on the ground.
Often named ‘book openings’ or ‘chest openers’, this is a simple and effective way to relieve stress and tension from the neck, shoulders and upper back.
