Upper back pain can be caused from a variety of reasons.
The two most-common that I encounter in my physical therapy clinic are lack of range of motion (this area of your back is too “tight” or too “stiff”) or a lack of strength (lacking “stability” to perform a variety of daily functions).
Fortunately, the right stretches to increase motion and the right exercises to increase strength often alleviate pain in your upper back and help you to feel better fast!
And that’s exactly the purpose of this video! I want to demonstrate a few simple exercises that you can do at home to improve the condition of your back and decrease your upper back pain.
I hope you enjoy and I hope they help you to feel better fast.
