Good movement to counter postural problems such as long hours sitting at a desk, slouching, and burning pain across the shoulders.
Target Muscles Chest, front of the neck and shoulder blade muscles.
Action Desired Decreasing forward head posture, pulling the scapula back, loosen up the pectoral muscles.
Exercise Movements Inhale, then exhale and gently lean in towards the wall. You should feel a gentle stretch in the pectoral muscles on your chest. Hold 10-30 seconds. Hold stretch just to a point where it feels challenging but causes no pain or discomfort. This is like doing a push-up on the wall. You may feel your shoulder blades “kissing” in the back.
Start Position Stand facing the corner. Place palms and forearms on opposite walls with elbows bent at a 90 degrees.
Repetitions 3-4 times in morning and at night.
